The Bay of Fires is renowned for coastal walks around its 40 beaches, many of them pockets of sand less than 100 metres long. With its pure white sand and clear aqua waters, Cosy Corner is the pick of the lot. indd 49 4/07/12 9:58 AM C o ttesl o e P E R T H , W estern A ustralia U R B A N L I F E S T Y L E | P E OP L E W A T C H I N G | I N D I A N OCEAN SUNSETS | GENTLE WAVES | WA’S FIRST SURF LIFE SAVING CLUB C ❂ The citizens of Perth have been flocking to Cottesloe in droves since the railway reached here in 1880.

The only development is the Darwin Surf Life Saving Club at the southern end ❂ and three parking and picnic areas. The 7-metre tide range produces a beach that expands from 50 metres wide at high tide to more than 200 metres at low tide, revealing in the process a couple of undulating intertidal ridges and runnels. The beach is usually calm and, as well as swimming and fishing, offers walking and cycling tracks, and a dog exercise and horse riding area in the park behind. There is a clothing optional area north of the Dariba Road picnic area.

The best of the beaches sits at the very tip of the central Peron Peninsula, at Cape Peron in the Francis Peron National Park (Peron was the naturalist on Baudin’s expedition). It’s worth the 50-kilometre drive from Denham, much of it on dusty red tracks, to visit the small cape beach, with its white sands, perched below bright red pindan bluffs. You can view and photograph both this and the longer beaches on either side from the top of the bluffs, or walk down and swim in the crystal-clear waters where seagrass meadows extend to the tip of the cape.
