Bathers Beach, Fremantle (also known as Whalers Beach), is a small and protected beach right on the edge of Fishing Boat Harbour. This 300m stretch of beautiful white sand is perfect for swimming, with the bay largely protected by two rock walls.
Regular activities are held on the beach and kids love to play on old wooden pylons or the remaining parts of the original Long Jetty. This was originally constructed in 1873 and served as the region’s point of access for trade and communication until it was replaced by the opening of Fremantle Harbour in 1897.
Bathers Beach also features a lovely grassed area adjacent to the beach as well as a licensed section for food and drink service (as part of Bathers Beach House).
