Ramada Vetroblu Scarborough BeachActivities in & around Scarborough

There are plenty of attractions and fun-filled activities to choose from in Scarborough.

Scarborough is arguably Perth’s most popular beach where you can swim, surf, paddle-board and kite-surf. You can join a local surf-school to help you get started, or sit back and relax by the iconic Scarborough Beach Pool. Scarborough’s latest addition offers a skate-bowl unlike any other where you can watch the experts at work. Why not hire a bike in Scarborough and explore the length of the Sunset Coast on the dual use paths stretching from Fremantle in the south to Burns Beach in the North.

Grab a refreshing drink or ice-cream after a swim or enjoy a relaxing meal at the many cafes or bars overlooking the ocean. You can visit the old favourites as well as some unique new venues – there are options to suits all tastes.

Scarborough will offer a range of new retail outlets to compliment the long-standing favourite surf-shops. Pop up markets will feature over the busy summer period on Thursday nights where you can grab a bite and a unique gift or a treat for yourself.

Or simply relax and take in the spectacular view from Sunset Hill with friends and family. Refresh yourself at one of the local yoga, Pilates or Meditation classes. Sit back and watch the local morning surfer or wait for the notorious Fremantle Doctor winds to light up the sky line with kite surfers.


Scarborough Beach Pool isn’t just a swimming pool – it’s so much more. It’s a world class recreation facility. It’s your go-to fitness centre. It’s your new local eatery. It’s the perfect tourist destination. It’s an iconic landmark situated in the heart of Scarborough.

It boasts stunning views of the coast, two geothermally heated pools, room to sunbathe, places to eat and plenty of fitness programs to keep you active. With all this and much more, the Scarborough Beach Pool is the perfect place to visit, all year round.
