I'm adding this beach first, because it is the very first Aussie beach I visited, on my first morning in Sydney, thus it holds a warm spot in my heart.

This is a typical "Northern Beach" of Sydney, it has the beautiful golden brown sand, the safe ocean swimming pool at the south end, and Surf Lifesavers Club. This is a good beach for walking along, surfing, sunbathing, swimming or people watching. They have flags up where it is safe to swim between.

In the early 1990's, this beach was almost chosen as the filming location for BayWatch. The local residents were up in arms (my friends live near here and told me all about it!) abut having Hollywood move into their quaint town/village. Thankfully, Baywatch ultimately moved to Hawaii instead.

This beach is a great local hangout, not too many tourists. It's just a short walk across the street to all the shops (supermarket, post office, surf shops, fruit and veg markets, etc).

Located approx one hour north of Sydney, you can enjoy a beautiful & scenic coastal drive to get here.

Address: Approx a one hour drive north of Sydney
Directions: Easily accessible by car or bus. The L90 bus, stops right next to the beach car park. Couldn't be any easier!!
