Floreat Beach

Floreat Beach is in Western Australia, located off West Coast Highway, directly next to City Beach.

The beach‘s southern extremity is a groyne[1][2] and continues north past a drain pipe until Hale Road dog beach.[3] In front of the beach area near the groyne there is a carpark, boardwalk, grassed area, and cycle path. The groyne has a seasonally occurring sand-bar that forms a left breaking wave that is popular with bodyboarders and surfers.[4]

The beach neighbours City Beach, which in season has surf life savers.
It is between this beach and City beach that undersea cables are positioned.[5]

Floreat Beach is located in the foreshore area.
