Mettams Pool

Beach in Scarborough to Cottesloe

On calm days, it's like a turquoise paddling pool with some of Perth's best snorkelling – think mottled reef with swaying seaweeds and similarly coloured fish. Avoid the water, particularly the outer reef, during rough weather as it has proven dangerous in the past. There's a wheelchair-accessible path leading to a beach shelter and another to the sand.
