Top 10 Perth Coastal Suburbs for 2016

It’s no secret that the most sought after suburbs in Perth lie close to the beautiful coast. Though beach suburbs are often thought of as the most expensive spots to live, the current real estate market is a buyers’ market – and it’s the perfect time to invest! Plus, many coastal suburbs in Perth and surrounds are still up and coming, adding that extra layer of affordability.

Searching for real estate near the beach?

Take a look at the top 10 coastal suburbs in Perth for this year.


The perfect spot for those after a piece of real estate north of Perth, with easy access to the city. With major new investments, the already burgeoning suburb is going to become even more desirable in coming years. With surrounding beachside suburb prices skyrocketing, it’s only a matter of time before Scarborough prices reach the same heights.


Another upcoming northern coastal suburb that is undervalued compared to similar prime locations. Beautiful beaches, amazing snorkelling spots, and affordable blocks and homes!


One of the most recognised coastal suburbs with incredibly popular beaches, prices in Cottesloe are steady. A prime location and favourite spot for those with larger budgets.

Two Rocks

Nestled right at the edge of Perth’s northern suburbs, Two Rocks falls in the category of slightly more affordable compared to other coastal suburbs. Many new estates are being built in the area, so a great chance to buy a modern designed home. 


North of Perth this is an established spot for locals and punters wanting to get away from the hussle and bussle of the city lights for a weekend. Another affordable coastal suburb within an established community and rapidly expanding with new estates.


A rapidly growing southern coastal suburb with the potential for huge things! This is a fantastic spot to invest in, with many pockets offering real estate at reasonable prices.westc



A rapidly growing area with major investments and re-developments currently underway, Rockingham is a great spot to invest in south of Perth away from the city.

Safety Bay

An established community and new housing developments in Safety Bay make it an ideal coastal suburb to consider.

Secret Harbour

A young community, the beautiful Secret Harbour is full of gorgeous real estate, with most homes within walking distance to the beach. Great for a beachy lifestyle.


It’s one of the fastest growing regional spots in Western Australia, and prime real estate around the foreshore and marina is still available at reasonable prices.
