South Beach is in South Fremantle. The foreshore area is a long strip of grassed picnic area with lots of huge old trees to provide shade. Over a small sand dune is the beach, and the picnic area and playground has ocean views.
There is a brand new playground at South Beach. It is blue and boat themed, with a large climbing area and a set of swings. Our kids loved the 'walk the plank' area where you can play pirates (if you jump off the plank you land on softfall so it is very safe). There are big blue shade sails over the top and softfall on the ground.
The area has two coffee options now - the South Beach Cafe is open for breakfast and lunch and is a great informal eating area where it is quite ok to eat breakfast in your bathers. They do sit down and takeaway, including icecreams.
At the other end of the park is a new cafe - the Pickled Fig Cafe. This is part of the chain of 'Fig' cafes that features the Wild Fig in Waterman and the Naked Fig in Swanbourne. The Pickled Fig does breakfast lunch and dinner, and they do do takeaway coffees.
