This beach has got the lot,-white sand,clean and safe bathing, long esplanade, and bags of atmosphere. There are eating and drinking places around too. The view and location is stunning and hard to beat amongst Sydney's many beaches.

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.

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.

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