What's Near The Esplanade Scarborough Beach
The Esplanade is Scarborough's most westerly road which is about 2 km long from Manning Road in the north to Lion's Grove in the south. A cycle path / footpath and soon to be constructed boardwalk run along the western side of The Esplanade while on the eastern side are many fine apartment hotels, bed & breakfast accommodation places, the Scarboro Surf Life Saving Club which has moved to north Scarborough Beach, cafes and restaurants and business offices. The Esplanade is Perth's popular place to watch and photograph spectacular sunsets, for lovers to park and pash, occasional stupid hoons to do burn outs, fresh sea air diners to enjoy al fresco dining at it's best, skaters and cyclers and for voyeurs to watch beautiful people go by. Like Muscle Beach, it is the in place to watch the watchers.

At the moment there is plenty of free public car parking on The Esplanade except for the hottest summer days when all of Perth seems to want to come to Scarborough Beach. There is a trend for the City of Stirling to reduce The Esplanade car parking bays and also take money in leu of by-laws for car bay to number of apartments ratio. Most condominiums and hotel accommodation along The Esplanade have secure parking for each apartment but with future property developments this may not be the case meaning visitors to apartments will use public bays.
