Beach

Coogee Beach (WA 825) commences on the northern side of the seawall and gently curves to the north for 3.7 km. It is patrolled by the Coogee Beach Surf Life Saving Club and forms the northern shoreline of the foreland and at its northern point reconnects with the inner calcarenite of the old Pleistocene shoreline called James Rocks.

The southern part of the beach is within the regional park, with the Jervoise Bay Sailing Club located at the very southern end. It is then backed by a vegetated reserve and the old Quarantine station. The reserve continues to a small jetty backed by a recreational area with all facilities, a camping area and the old munitions depot, and finally the Coogee Beach Resort and a northern recreational jetty, with a terminal groyne just south of James Rocks.

From James Rocks the shoreline trends north for 5.5 km to the southern training wall of Fremantle Harbour. In between is a once continuous sandy shore that has been heavily modified by structures and development when the area was backed by industry. Since the 1990’s its backshore has undergone a transformation from a power station, railway yards and meat works, to in part, the Catherine Point Reserve, the South Beach Recreational Reserve and a large fishing and small boat harbour to the north.

All the beaches (WA 826-832) face west and are partly sheltered by a string of reefs, including Carnac Island, that extend north of Garden Island. The reefs lies 5-6 km offshore and lower ocean waves to less that 1 m at the shore.
