Wanneroo Beach starts at the north side of the breakwater and stretches 3.2 km to the bluffs. The Quinns-Mindarie Surf Life Saving Club is located in the centre of the drive on the north side of the foreland. The swells are generally low here, so swimming hazards are minimal, however the beach can be steep with deep water not far from the beach. Care should be exercised, especially with young children and non-swimmers. Waves are generally not large enough and the surf zone is too narrow for surfing.
