Come discover Frenchmans Bay Beach La Perouse.

Frenchmans  Bay Beach La Perouse it’s a little beach in the Botany Bay, sheltered, so there are no waves, so it’s ideal for small children.

Frenchmans Bay got its name after the famous French explorer & navigator Francois de Galaup, Comte de La Perouse and his crew rested during their sojourn at Botany Bay in January/February 1788.

La Perouse & men landed on the northern shore of Botany Bay west of Bare Island on 26 January 1788.

You will find the La Perouse Monument on the southside of the beach.

It is also the burial place of Pere Louis Receveur, a Franciscan friar who came to Australia as a scientist on L’Astrolabe with La Perouse.

He died here on 17th February 1788 from an injury received during an attack by natives in Samoa two months earlier.

Frenchmans Beach has been cut in 2 section because of the rock groyne (a low wall or sturdy timber barrier built out into the sea from a beach to check erosion and drifting.)

The southern beach begins inside La Perouse Point and curves to the north for 420 m to the rock groyne & then keeps going to Yarra Point.

From the beach, there are views over Botany Bay to the west and Botany Bay National Park to the south. This westerly outlook gives Frenchmans Bay a unique orientation amongst Sydney beaches.

Frenchmans Beach is the first beach when you go around the large roundabout closest to the shops. It’s accessible from the road, the reserve north of the boatshed and an access path near the groyne.

The park has a couple of trees to give shade and has, a small playground for kids to play on.

It’s a short distance to cafés and shops of food/drinks & amenities.

You can even go for a walk along the Frenchman walk,

If you feel like getting healthy, the park has a series of exercise stations.
