It had been ages since I had come to this beach - over 30 years ago - I used to scuba dive off the beach for night dives. So time I took my family along to see how things have changed. We came at the end of the day - from 3pm - and were lucky to find a parking... More

This bay is a smaller one than some but it is a lovely safe beach suitable for all, Because of this it can be crowded on a nice day so go early if you can. The parking is sparse so be prepared for a bit of time to cruise looking for a park or park further away and walk. Once... More

When I lived in Sydney, one day I ventured out to Watson's bay and carried on walking until I stumbled upon this hidden gem. The beach is so beautiful, it can get fairly busy in the Summer months, but nothing like the main beaches such as Bondi or Coogee. It feels like you're on a mediterranean beach rather than in...

I've always loved this place. Living in Watsons Bay meant its always walking distance, but visiting it again on holidays it still hasn't lost its charm. Close to the heads, its a clean beach and the water is good too. Can see the busy harbour and its just such a quiet little spot away from the hustle and bustle of... More

Relatively small beach, great spot to be surrounded by locals. Small kiosk on the beach with snacks. Recommended to eat/take out fish and chips in one of the fish restaurants in Watsons Bay, a short walk away.

The water is so clear and inviting. The suburb is so quaint and shows some of Sydney's oldest beach cottage homes. They have all been kept so beautifully. It also boasts some masterpiece homes of the rich and famous too. It leads to a great walk of South Head. A definite must see on a great day.

My favourite city beach. You have the greatest view out towards South Head and the harbour. Great for walks along the rocks and up to Green Point...it´s right next to Sydney Harbour National Park. You can come and relax during the week and feel far away from the city. Rather full in summer, at weekends and especially on Boxing Day... More

Almost a secret known only to locals, it has kept its local and harbour feel. It cannot be compared to the bustling beaches of Bondi, Coogee or Manly and doesnt have the surf and waves of those beaches - probably very suited to a family outing although parking can be a problem.

This beach has limited parking so never gets to crowded. Popular with families with small children on weekends and scuba diving groups during the week. Only 10 minutes walk North from the ferry wharf. Has toilets and an outdoor shower at the North end. There is also a nice walk from there along to South Head and the Hornsby Lighthouse,... More
