“One of my favorite Newcastle spots!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

I love visiting Merewether Beach with my kids or alone. It's always quiet, not too packed, and the scenery (surfers!) is always good. There are also a couple cafes which are great. This is one of my favorite places to visit and I often go here to just relax quietly and read. I love that there isn't always an overflow of people and it's very scenic.

“Surf, sun and sand - even in mid-winter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

Visit the surf life saving club and while away the afternoon in the sun with a cheese board and a glass of your favourite wine.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

My husband grew up in Merewether and refers to it as 'God's country'! Beats anything we've been to including beaches in Tahiti, Fiji, Malaysia, Hawaii, California, or the Gold Coast! Can't visit Newcastle without at least a drive-by! (we've lived in Sydney '88). We love the new cafe near the Baths, & the covered picnic tables. Parking can be a nightmare but where isn't it at a good beach? At least it's still free!

“Great beach for all the family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

Good clean sand for the kids to play on.. Rock pools to explore safe from the large surf break which kept the ex surfing parents entertained.

Good bar upstairs that parents could rotate through... Kids not allowed.

A great spot for a lazy afternoon.
