The 3 km of beach between Floreat and Scarborough is backed by a 200 m wide dune reserve, with occasional car parks and the foredune rising to 10-15 m. The section north Floreat to just south of the Scarboro surf club is also known as Brighton Beach.Scarborough Beach (WA 842A) has developed into one of Perth’s more popular beaches. However, it and neighbouring Trigg Beach are the two more hazardous beaches on the Perth coast.A patrol tower in front of the club provides lifesavers with a good view of the surf. This 2.5 km section of beach is slightly more hazardous than its southern and northern neighbours owing to the occurrence of higher waves, coupled with its popularity.The higher waves both break more heavily on the bar, and are more likely to produce rips which in turn scour rip channels across the bar every 100-200 m. The car park at the end of Brighton Road is a popular spot to check for surf.

Swimming

There are two Surf Life Saving Clubs and associated patrolled areas to swim at on this long beach. The patrolled area offers the safest swimming areas. However be a little more careful on Scarborough as waves are usually bigger and rips more persistent and stronger. Always stay between the flags, on the bar and close inshore.

Surfing

The best beach breaks are amongst the higher waves at the Scarborough end of the beach. The main breaks are associated with the groyne at Floreat.

General

This stretch of beach is the site of two Surf Life Saving Clubs, and a beach with excellent access and parking facilities, extensive foreshore reserves and numerous facilities for beach goers and visitors including beachfront restaurants. However it is also the site over 75% of all surf rescues in Western Australia, so only swim at patrolled beaches between the flags.
