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

I love this little beach. It is one of the few harbour beaches that still feels local. It is a bit of a walk from Watsons Bay but I highly recommend it.

In the early days of Sydney was simply a fishing village and somehow has retained that small, intimate quality. It is a little harbour beach that is close to The Heads.

Best visited during the week as it gets quite busy on the weekend. Very little swell and not too deep in parts, so good for parents with kids, but does get very crowded in summer. Working in the area I pop down for a few laps after work and as you are a bit further out there isnt really much... More

it is small and friendly. it is very expensive real estate there and it's fun to look at the houses right near the beach. it isn't a surf beach and i like the gentle waves. there is a shark net

Gets busy, so you need to get there early enough to get parking and a good spot - but all in all a great place to enjoy some sun.
