Love it!

Excellent little pool with brilliant facilities - showers/toilets/snacks. Its perfect for really hot days because there is lots of shaded park up from the beach.

Hi everyone - I'm a local resident and tired of reminding visitors to this part of the world 'smoking is prohibited' anywhere on the beach. There are people who leave their butts and rubbish behind. This is unique place and we pay significant council fees to keep it maintained. If you don't want to abide by these rules then stay... More

That's quite a chilled out pool if you wanna have an easy "beach" day and live in the eastern suburbs. It is pretty small though and quite crowded on the weekends, but during the week it can be very very nice and chilled out. Especially for families and kids the pool is nice due to the barrier and some things... More

It's a good spot if you've got older kids that can carry their own bags and food. Our kids (10 in total aged between 5months to 12 years) didn't like it coz they said the ladder was too slippery and the steps were too far apart for them to climb up. I didn't really like it for the younger kiddies... More

We meet regularly for breakfast as a group and can strongly recommend this cafe Great views over the harbour in a quiet setting that's never too crowded. Reasonable prices and tasty food plus good coffee. Recommended

We went during summer. It was too crowded and the water didn't seem too clean. Would be fun if there weren't as many people since it is just a small beach. What I didn't like though was that there weren't enough eateries. They only had redleaf cafe which didn't offer enough choices.

The classic "Red leaf pool" has been a great hidden swimming spot for Sydney locals for years. There is a great cafe on site, changing rooms, lots of places to sit either on grass, cement or sand. The water is safe for kids and you can do laps there no problems. There are two pontoons to swim out to to... More
