Trigg Beach is another one of Perth's great beaches, located approximately 14km from Perth. It's a beautiful, safe beach for families and a great spot for the young ones to do some snorkeling.
Trigg Beach is perfect for families for lots of reasons. The Clarko Reserve playground car park is located right near the beach so it's only a short walk from the car park to the beach - which is great for hauling all those boogie boards, sand toys, shade and more to the beach! Right in front of the car park is a ramp to access the beach. This is great for disabled access or if you want to take the pram right onto the beach.
Trigg Beach is well protected by the reef that completely surrounds this area of the beach - so there are usually only very small waves if any at all. The reef is mostly smooth and there are breaks in the reef where you can enjoy a paddle. It's a great spot for little ones learning to snorkel, there are small little gaps in the reef where you can see lots of fish swimming about. It's nice and shallow, but there is enough depth to swim over the reef.
The beach itself is mostly rock free and sandy - it is a very narrow beach though, but this makes it easy to access with a pram and close to the car park if you need to head back to the car for supplies. Just a word of warning though - this area can get rough if the tide is high and the swell is high, as the water comes in faster over the reef and it can be a little unsafe for the little ones with all the reef around - so check the tides and swell before you go.
We love a beach with toilets, changerooms and showers so you can get all the sand off before getting in the car. The shower and toilet block is located at the southern end of the car park.
You also might want to bring the bikes along as the beautiful West Coast Drive cycle way runs right past this beach, so you could go for a ride then come back for a refreshing swim. Or perhaps you may like to make a day of it and stay for a picnic, bbq and a play at the playground. This is a a great spot for summer bbqs by the beach!
If it's coffee you are after just a few minutes stroll away is Yelo to the north, and Canteen Trigg & Island Market to the south - just walk along the cycle path you can't miss them. They also do a great fish and chips to take away, so you can can take them back to the park for an evening of swimming and fish and chips in the park. There is a nice little nature based playground alongside Canteen too if you want to stay and enjoy your coffee and something to eat while the kids play.
