“Lived up to its name !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Having spent many dollars on a Whale watching cruise, I had the fortune to have just as spectacular a show standing on this beach having just bought a A$3 parking ticket!! Yes, the Whales on their migration south in October time do pass that close to the shore line.

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

This little beach is one of the many gems in the Northern Beach location. There are huge pines that dot the beach which allow you to sit on the sand with shade provided. Great place for the family, visitors from out of town any time of year.

“Great location; even better surf”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

This was my all-time favorite surfing beach, located way up the northern part of the Barrenjoey Peninsula, but accessible by public bus. The beach itself is quite small by Sydney standards, but I've had the best surfing experiences of my life there, and I've surfed at some of the top beaches in the Hawaiian islands.

“Have a whale of a time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Another great Sydney beach without the crowds of the bigger beaches. The drive to the beach takes you through some of the great northern beaches suburbs and there are many scenic areas and places for photographs along the way
