Sorrento Beach offers excellent family swimming and turquoise water laps against pure white sand, making it an idyllic spot for a relaxing afternoon of beach fun. The City of Joondalup in conjunction with the State Government installed a beach enclosure at Sorrento Beach in late 2016.
Please Note: Due to the current condition of the beach enclosure and recent storm events the City is unable to guarantee that the enclosure will restrict the entry of marine life, possibly including sharks, into the swimming area. The City advises that, as with all other beaches, you swim at your own risk.
At its November 2020 meeting, Joondalup Council unanimously resolved to remove the Sorrento Beach enclosure due to the compromised integrity of the structure.
Removal of the existing structure is likely to commence on Monday 23 November 2020. Some sections of the beach will not be available for use by the public during this time.
The City will investigate options for the provision of a replacement enclosure. This will enable the City to adequately investigate and plan appropriately to implement a new enclosure, aided by the lessons learnt from the Sorrento Beach enclosure.
Sorrento Beach is located directly south of the bustling Hillarys Boat Harbour which is home to plenty of restaurants and cafes, as well as the Aquarium of Western Australia.
The Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club provides peace of mind with lifeguard patrols on weekends and public holidays, while midweek lifeguard patrols are provided by the City in conjunction with Surf Life Saving WA.
