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

Made even better by the weather! This is a beautiful beach, with the Boat House Restaurant conveniently located nearby. It's in a great area of the northern beaches. Lovely place.

I went to Palm Beach quite a few times when I went to Australia and I was privileged enough to see a dolphin there! I couldn't believe my eyes:a dolphin! I saw the lonely dolphin in the pitwater of palm beach.Later on in my holiday,I went to learn to surf in the wavy bit of palm beach. I felt safe... More

it's always great to leave the city for a little day trip up the coast and the beaches are just awesome as are the locals. stop for lunch in Avalon(??) at the Ibiza café/restaurant where you can sit by the fire and enjoy their own beer.

This is a great day out from the Central Coast to Palm Beach or vice versa!! The trip takes about half an hour and is beautiful trip. We have seen whales ( in the right season October) and dolphins often. Make a day of it in either direction. You can catch a bus at wharf at Palmy to the main... More

If you’ve got a day to spare, don’t miss out on the Northern beaches – especially Palm Beach. In my opinion, it’s one of the most underrated beaches in Sydney. If you ever visit Sydney and have got half a day to spare, make a trip to Palm Beach instead of hitting Bondi or the like. Palm beach is a... More
