Beachfront views with an urban advantage
It’s not hard to see why they call our stretch of beach the Sunset Coast. Guests of Seashells Scarborough enjoy complimentary sunsets over the Indian Ocean every night!
Scarborough has long been a favourite beach for Perth locals to cool off and kick back. We’re just 15 minutes from the centre of Perth and provide a great alternative to the busyness of the city. Fremantle and Hillarys Boat Harbour are also within easy reach.
Beach walks, surfing, swimming, kitesurfing, cycling and beachside dining are all the norm on Scarborough Beach and our guests have a home away from home – with a spectacular view.
Scarborough beachfront makeover now complete
Guests of Seashells Scarborough can now make the most of the beautiful new Scarborough beachfront revitalisation which we think makes it one of Australia’s best beachfront destinations.
The $100 million government project is now complete and features a fantastic beachfront swimming pool which includes Cocolat Café and alfresco Italian restaurant La Capannina (opening soon).
The beachfront now also includes Sunset Hill – a beautiful spot for picnics with scenic views over the ocean. Kids will enjoy the amazing new children’s playground called The Whale, plus there’s an all-ages climbing wall, half-court basketball, and the popular Snake Pit skate park bowl.
Seashells Scarborough’s entry and car park are easy to access and traffic is back to two-way on The Esplanade.
Scarborough’s retail and dining precinct along The Esplanade includes craft beer haven The Squire’s Fortune, plus hip cafes and casual dining options. Summertime live entertainment at the amphitheatre on Scarborough Beach creates a festive vibe.
Due to general wear and tear on the property’s swimming pool in the main Seashells building, we are unfortunately experiencing water ingress issues. Rectification works are required for the whole pool area and the pool itself. As a result, the pool area and first floor will be closed to guests during these works.Work will commence on 30th April 2018 for approximately 12 weeks. Over this period, there may be some disruption to guests from the use of power tools and machinery between the hours of 8.30am – 5pm Monday to Saturday.
Guests are welcome to utilise the unheated pool overlooking the ocean in the adjacent Collections building. Alternatively, of course, we now have the magnificent new public Scarborough Beach pool, which is geothermally heated, directly opposite us and is open 7 days a week, from: 5.30am – 9pm Monday to Friday; 6.30am – 8pm Saturday; and 7.30am – 8pm Sunday.
The pool works will result in a facelift to the outdoor area, providing a more modern look.
Bookings in Collections and Sandcastles Apartments will not be affected by these works.
