Ok so the hype of Palm Beach is fantastic! But when you get there and want to get a coffee, it turns out not so great! Waited in line for 30mins just to get a coffee, which wasn't so nice anyway. Didn't even get into the café here as was totally booked out had to order from a little make... More

Palm beach is a beautiful beach just under 2hrs from sydney! A must see if your a fan of home and away (which of course I am) get there early if you liked to see any of the cast filming at the surf club or down by the bait shop/diner!

There is no better place a clear Summers day. The walk to Barrenjoey Lighthouse is an added attraction followed by a lovely lunch at the golfclub. Ideal Sunday activity, just be early so you can park!!

Fantastic vista, but the place is quite crowded, which can spoil the experience. Even managed to spot some dolphins a few meters from the beach!

Palm Beach is an approximate 2.5 hours drive from the Sydney city centre. The beach stretches on for quite a distance and we loved that it wasn't crowded like other beaches. We walked from Palm Beach to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse, which wasn't an easy walk in the soft sand when your feet sinks in and sets you back by half... More

I live in Manly and I love it to travel to Palm Beach with friends just for a relaxed beach day with a nice barbecue on the evening. The drive is not so bad but the beach is really nice and not so crowded like other beaches along the coast from Sydney. Always worth the drive.

I can honestly say I have never seen a beach so clean with sand so soft. It was a pleasure to view and walk along it. Whoever maintains this should be very proud. No visitors should be disappointed with the scenery...absolutely beautiful
