This is quite a big beach with nice easy surf at the south end and usually bigger surf at the northern end. The banks are not as steep as other northern beaches and very safe at the southern end. This is without doubt the most beautiful slice of coastline in greater Sydney and surrounds. A lot quieter than Bondi and... More

The water was kind of cold even in the australian summer. It offers a different kind of beach with pines instead of palm trees in the beach.

Getting out of the city on the weekend is what many of us Sydney- siders like to do! The obvious choice for many of us is of course Palm Beach. It is less than an hours drive from the city centre. 15 years ago we were coming to Palm Beach to take our little darlings to the beach and to... More

Nice food nearby with convenient parking. Easy day at the beach with beautiful views and clean clear water. Hard to imagine we were still in Sydney.

Better than Bondi. Clean and good for kids. Shower and changing facilities nearby as well as kids park and picnic areas. Worth also visiting the inlet which has calmer waters ideal for canoeing. Water not as clear as main beach area.

An amazing location with its orange beaches sprawled over a long enough distance that you can experience down time and chill by yourself or friends, or mix within the crowds, which is useful if you have kids. The location of the refurbished beach house is the old backdrop from Home and Away where you can pick up the basics. The... More

Great place to have a family friendly picnic and a swim in the sea, friendly lifeguards on duty all the time, watch out for blue bottles though - they sting. Parking is a bit expensive.

The main attraction for this beach is to visit the set of the famous tv show, home and away. It's a really stunning drive right up to the top of the peninsular, but it gets busy so early morning would be recommended to avoid heavy traffic and lots of people. The walk up to the lighthouse is beautiful as well... More
