Cottesloe Beach Sunset Awash


The sunset spans the wide canvas and reflects on the ocean and waves, then on the wave wash on the shore in the mid-ground, and finally on the wet sand in the foreground. The foamy edge of the wave wash contrasts with the dark wet beach sand in the dusk of the evening and stretches across the foreground. The distant horizon is dappled with delicate clouds in shades of burnt purple and orange, and they stretch up into the sky in colours of orange and red. Small on the horizon to the left of the canvas the tiny silhouette of a container ship can be seen, and a second ship more dimly to the right of the sunset, steaming over the horizon.

Cottesloe Beach

Cottesloe Beach is one of the most popular of all Western Australia’s city beaches. It is located midway between the Perth central business district and the port of Fremantle in Perth’s western suburbs, only 15 minutes from the city centre. Cottesloe is renowned for its relaxed lifestyle and has been a popular seaside holiday destination for Perth locals for more than 100 years. Its village atmosphere and rich maritime heritage is sure to entice you to explore beyond its golden sands. It’s also the perfect place to watch the sun set over the Indian Ocean while dining on fresh seafood.

Cottesloe Beach, located in Perth’s western suburbs, is a one and a half kilometre stretch of golden sand which extends north from Mudurup Rocks to the southern rocks of Swanbourne Beach. It’s one of the city’s favourite beaches for swimming, snorkelling, surfing and watching the sun set over the Indian Ocean.

Crystal clear waters and consistent waves make it a popular spot for swimmers, body boarders and surfers. In 2009 Lonely Planet named Cottesloe Beach the world’s second best beach for families.
