The Australian city is not only loved best my locals and visitors for its abundance of sun but also because the city is design for people to get in the outdoors and get their daily share of the sun. Perth has so many spots and places for foot trips and biking trips. Also it offers a lot of public space for lounging, picnic and just chilling on the banks of the Swan River.

It is one of the best getaways for swimming and surfing in the metropolitan area and is known for hosting the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships that took place in the year 2009.
Cottesloe offers a cozy, classy more sociable over adventurous beach experience than most metropolitan beaches in Perth. While one can expect a good swim most of the times, Cottlestoe is better known for its cozy cafés and grass-lined slopes making is a great place to chill in the afternoons.
Surfing is another sport or say, pastime that Australia is much known for. However, in all of the country, there is no better place to expect a good swell on some random day than on sunny Perth. Even metropolitan beaches like Trigg can be expected to offer great surfing spots. As a matter of fact surfing classes are offered in most of these beaches.

Underwater Escapades: Snorkeling and Scuba Diving
Want to get more of the water right under the sun, Perth has this solved for everyone. Scuba divers and snorkelers find great underwater adventures amidst fishes, corals, caverns and wrecks in Rottnest Island which is located just 12 miles away from Perth.
This is because when most countries have winter and cold seasons from December to May, Perth has the best of the sun during these months. This does not mean that Perth does not get its share of the cold season, though. It does have winter with snow and rain but because it is beautifully sunny even during its cold months one can still expect no less than 6 hours of sun daily. Now, for those who want a good compromise between a mild weather and a sunny one in Perth, the months between April and May; and September and November gives just this- a mild, fine, beautiful weather that is best for strolling.
