The City of Rockingham is renowned for its safe, calm, shallow-water swimming and sandy beaches. Some of the best beaches in the area include Rockingham Beach, Palm Beach, Safety Bay, Shoalwater, Warnbro, Port Kennedy and Waikiki Foreshore.
Secret Harbour beach is patrolled weekends and public holidays from October through to the end of March. From the start of December through to the end of January it is patrolled on weekdays by a professional lifeguard. Swim between the flags, and if you are unsure of your ability, do not swim alone.
