“My Fav Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

The only beach I go to in Newcastle- nice and only a handful of people when ever we go! And for those who dont swim its just a beautiful relaxing spot!

“Great place to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

This beach is beautiful, but if you don't get the tides right you could be in danger for some of the other things the beach has to offer.
The beach itself is quite a safe to swim. The other parts that I like are having a look in the rock pools, watching the blowhole and walking in the caves but as I said you must have the tides right - its certainly worth the walk to go and see, so try not to miss it

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

One of the best beaches in Newcastle, for sure!
This beautiful beach set behind a beautiful rainforest is the perfect isolated retreat.

“Best in summer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

One of the less crowded beaches around Newcastle, Dudley beach has once of the more consistent breaks around town. Can get rough when windy though so if that occurs you may want to think about a less exposed beach - try bar or dixon park

“Pristine unspoilt !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Look it's only 15 minutes from the city but it's surrounded by nature with only a house or two to be seen. Be careful swimming here as the beach is unpatrolled, however there is a huge rock platform at the southern end with picture perfect rock pools teeming with marine life. It's great for the kids to see nature so unspoilt so close to the city. Take a backpack full of goodies because there are no shops around.
