“Perfect in all aspects”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

Newport beach is long, not too busy with big grassy areas and a play area and sea pool. You can catch a surf here or just take a easy swim between the flags. There is ample parking, much of it free and a great variety of places to eat even a Coles supermarket that caters for those who want a sandwich or fruit salad. The shops are in a short strip with some trendy boutiques and coffee nooks , excellent asian eateries and weirdly 7 pizza joints! If your visiting from over seas catch the L90 bus from the city, its a long but pleasant cheap way to see the northern beaches.

“Tranquil beach just outside of Sydney centre”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

I stopped here for a few moments to take a couple of photos on the way down from Palm Beach. The sand was just like in Palm Beach; warm, light brown and soft.

However, unlike Palm Beach, the shops and cafes were not that close and you need to cross the road and walk a bit to get to them.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

This is a popular beach within close proximity to the main road. We lived in Sydney for a year and would often stop here on the way back from Palm Beach (Summer Bay)

“Scenic and good beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Newport beach is one of Sydney's lovely northern beaches. It is a beautiful beach and good for a cooling "dip". The surrounds - i.e. grassed area - are good for picnicking and there are very nice coffee shops, cafés and restaurants in the "strip" of road alongside the beach.
