A pretty family beach, clean and beautiful. Limited parking but nice walks and good swimming. Some good pubs and cafes not far from here in Palm Beach and Avalon.

It is truly beach season in Sydney during the first week of the new year. We initially wanted to drive up to Palm Beach but due to the large crowd and no parking to be found, we turned south to beautiful Whale Beach.

The site of the filiming of Home and Away, this is a nice beach in the Pittwater district. The swells/rips can be severe here, so it is not a great bathing beach. It's a nice place to cool off if you have been bushwalking further north.

This beach is so perfect I can't believe it's not more crowded. It has a playground and a restaurant as well as outdoor showers. It really is beautiful.

Great place to relax and enjoy the scenery. Not as busy as a lot of the other beaches. It's a good day trip from the city, to get away from it all.
