City Beach (WA 841) is one of Perth's premier beaches. A patrol tower is located at the tip of the southern groyne. City Beach, like the adjoining beaches receives relatively low waves, averaging 0.5 to 1 m, and usually has a steep beach and a continuous bar. Rips only occur along the beach during higher waves, particularly in winter, however whenever waves are breaking across the bars, rips runs out against the groynes.The northern City Beach groyne marks the beginning of a 6.4 km long continuous sand beach up to Trigg Island. Three surf life saving clubs patrol the beach, with Floreat on the south to the northern side of the groyne, then Scarboro 4 km up the beach, and Trigg Island just south of the low calcarenite of the island. The West Coast Highway backs the entire beach, with the best access at each of the three surf life saving clubs.When the Club was established in 1925 this section of dune backed beach was known as the ‘Sahara desert’. A plank road was constructed across the dunes in 1918, followed by primitive shelters and toilets in 1921 and finally the surf club in 1925. Today the modern clubhouse overlooks the beach and is backed by extensive car parks and a large grassy foreshore reserve.
