Really nice beach area of Sydney, loveliness and really soft sand with the benefit of a large safe area to swim. Great views out to sea, great place to while away a few hours.

Friends got married here recently. The view was amazing from the Rotunda. Great swimming area and cafes. Look in the back streets for free parking during the weekend.

As a local resident I often go to Balmoral Beach. The swimming in the shallow water is relatively safe, although the enclosed baths are better. As an artist, I find the beach and little island are very picturesque and "paintable", and you often see artists including the old Bathers' Pavilion in their painting. There are some lovely little cafes along... More

A great family friendly beach! Very casual vibe, great to just walk around, lounge on the beach, and swim!

If you have a week or so in Sydney, you could do a lot worse than spending one of them at Balmoral Beach. Great views, great walks, superb places to dine on fresh local fare, this place has it all. I always feel a bit of a French Riviera vibe down here, but with all the casualness of the Sydney... More

Great little beach for young families as the waves are usually small and there is a shark net. Good little take away shop.

Went this week with a friend on a quiet mid week sunny spring day. Grabbed a salad from a local cafe and walked along the water until we found a nice grassy spot. Mid week carparking is $5 an hour max 3 hrs, and we saw 2 parking inspectors so dont think you can get away with not paying!

We didn't eat at Balmoral, however we spent a day at the beach and it was excellent. If you want to swim without big waves crashing down and spend some time on the beach, I would highly recommend this beach.

This is my favourite spot in Sydney. Beautiful busy and buzzy in the summer weekends yet on a beautiful winters day quiet and calm. Walk down here as often as I can. Wonderful to relax on the grassy belt with a vino on a gorgeous day. Few great (yet pricey) restaurants all with lovely views. Perfect spot for young families... More
