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.

Hidden away south of Palm Beach the approach to Whale Beach from either direction is spectacular. It has a holiday feel about no matter what time of the year you visit. It is probably one of the least crowded of the northern beaches

It's quite a drive from the city so it is more of a place to stay for a couple of days or more.It doesn't have the crowds as beaches such as Manly, Bondi or Coogee have and yet it is a very appealing beach for swimming and enjoying the summer.The peninsular surrounding it is very appealing and there are lots...
