We parked our car in front of Pittwater Park on Barrenjoey road and walked around. Palm beach is on the opposite side of the peninsula where we parked and it's the longer between the two beaches. The one where we parked seems almost a beach on a lake because the water is very calm, it's very relaxing, quiet and you... More

It is more about the road trip (about 1 hour) to this beach, the walk to the lighthouse, and the lunch options nearby (a.o. Boathouse), than the actual beach. The difference of this beach is, apart from its non-residential setting, that you can have the rougher seaside and the very calm inlet side only 200m apart, since this is the... More

I had the most wonderful day at Palm Beach. Being a huge fan of Home and Away I was thrilled to paddle in the waters of "Summer Bay", and to see familiar sights of where filming takes place. Another item ticked off my bucket list!

Great place to visit for a family beach day, or a romantic couples walk. Close proximity to Barrenjoey Lighthouse makes for a nice walk with great views.

This is a lovely little beach with plenty to offer the discerning beach goer. There is plenty of parking all along the road running at the back of the beach. And the walk from the car is then literally non existent. The water was cold when I was there, but the sand and sun was warm. The sand is lovely... More

I loved my day trip to Palm Beach. I caught a bus from and to Sydney and it was extremely well priced. Being an avid Home and Away fan it was fantastic to see some of the familiar spots where filming takes place. Even if I was not a fan I would have still enjoyed my trip here as it... More

Spent many summers here. I think its one of the most scenic of the Northern Sydney beaches. Chaotic on weekends so get there early Its quite a way up from Sydney but is serviced by Public Transport. As another reviewer wrote, try and get there early to enjoy a swim, walk and a cup of coffee at the local cafe's

This place gets really busy when it's hot and it's holidays. So head up early and enjoy the lack of crowds and the early morning. Have a coffee at 2108 (on the beach front bathed in sunshine in the mornings) or The Boat House (amazing location on Pittwater but sit in the garden on the north side if you want... More

Big Home and Away fan. Beautiful beach and a lovely walk. Was surprised as not many people in Sydney new what we were talking about when asking how to get to the Home and Away Beach. Long bus journey but happy we seen it
