Alkimos Beach can be found about 40 minutes north of Perth, depending on traffic.
Alkimos is a new development which has huge potential. If you were looking at purchasing an investment property, or even a home away from the busy city, then you may want to consider this little place.
When we arrived to have a little “look-see” we could not help but feel that we were in a movie set. Most the houses were empty, waiting for someone to move in/to buy. Somme where still being built, and some roads where blocked off for new development.
The beach was my first port of call to see what it is like now and the potential of what it could be in the future – given that it is called Alkimos BEACH.
Of course, we were welcomed with a sign which stated that we would need to travel a distance to see it.
I could not help but wonder what it would be like IF someone was to walk this distance with kids? I knew that this journey would end up with a least one person unhappy and probably not a great start to the day? I could imagine getting there and someone said that they need to go to the bathroom? However, as I was determined to see what was on the other side of the hill I made it a mission to experience this journey.
The beach itself was deserted. I could imagine NEON sign saying “VACANCY”. In fact I am sure I saw that sign coming into the town. How exciting to be one of the first people on the beach before others in the future.
Of course the tires marks were a sure give away that there were other travelers. In spite of signs saying NO MOTORBIKES there were still some there. I just missed one as it came zooming past. NOW THAT was definitely in a movie scene!
There were still some areas that needed some fixing. But as it was early days I can be secure in knowing that this will be amended for the coming years.
To get to this location, you would need to take Marmion Road and head north. Alkimos Beach is the next development after Eden Beach.
However, in spite of its newness, Akimos is a fairly pleasant venue to visit. Of course in a couple of years it will be bustling with people, shops and probably be the next best beach to visit. However, these pictures are of the beach area and is what it looks like now. It would be great to see a before and after photo! See you in about 2 years? #feelsliketimetravel
