My wife and I have visited this beach on every visit to Oz ,I love the sea and the beach there. The resturants are really good and I am a home and away fan, so visited all the locations there. We have met a lot of the actors there.

Being a lifelong home and away fan this was on the to do list. It is easy to get to on the L90 bus from Sydney - takes about 90 minutes though it seemed less. I had read on trip advisor to get off at the golf course but this was a mistake as it turned out. We got off... More

Palm Beach is a great beach for body or board surfing or lust simply lying on the golden sands. Also a great spot for a stroll along the beach or sitting in a cafe enjoying the view.

The beach is beautiful. The Pittwater side is better for small children, the elderly and paddlers, as very calm. The other side has a long beach. South better for swimming. North better for surfing. Warning the waves can be powerful closest to the lighthouse. I was once walking along the beach paddling and I get knocked off my feet by... More

My aunt took me to this beach which is more famously known as 'Summer Bay' as it is the spot Home and Away is filmed on. It really was something else, it was a massive stretch of sand with huge waves and a truly breathtaking beach. The sand was darker than other beaches dotted around Syndey as it was more... More

The public bus L90 goes out to the beach, takes roughly an hour and a half to get out there for under $5 on the Opal card. The tours of Summer Bay cost $150+ not worth the money the dont guarentee the stars will be on set. Do the walk up to the lighthouse!
