Cottesloe Beach is on the Atlantic Ocean, slightly south of downtown Perth.

We stopped at Cottesloe Beach today for coffee and a bite to eat before we went down to the beach for a quick swim.

Cottesloe Beach is where Prince Charles got accosted and kissed on the cheek by admirer and model Jane Priest in 1979.

Cottesloe Beach on Wednesday morning, Perth’s iconic beach for visitors and locals alike. The beachfront street is lined with coffee shops and restaurants.

Prince Charles returned there this November for a beachside barbecue for his 67th birthday celebration, and as part of a 12-day visit to Australia and New Zealand.

(The celebrations came to an abrupt end after an unexpected thunderstorm sent guests running for cover as they sung him happy birthday, reported the website WAtoday, here).
