A wonderful spot to visit in the Winter when the beach is quite, car parks are plentiful and locals very friendly! This is the place to visit for delightful meals at the local Cafes and strolls along the beach having the calm Pittwater to one side and the surf beach to the other each within walking distance!

Luckily sunny day! It's been raining and wet around Manly. Small coffee and souvenir, surfing shops near by the beach. Picturesque.

North side is quiet, south side is busy. There's a rockpool at the south side - great for kids. The north side is more for surfing, or just chilling on the beach - not great surf - there are far better beaches on the Northern Beaches. Parking is tricky, especially at the south end, and of course you have to... More

Heading up to Palm Beach from Sydney is a great day trip. It's one of my favorite beaches in the Sydney area. Beautiful beaches (check out whale beach too) and a nice laid back town. And some very good restaurants. Jonah's for example is a great place for a special occasion lunch or dinner! The beach is beautiful and big... More

Palm beach benefits from two fantastic beaches, one on the lagoon side, the other on the sea side. Great places to be. If you stay in Sydney a trip to Palm Beach is a must.

Don't miss Palm Beach - and any of the beaches on the way to Palm Beach. Palm Beach is a lovely spot to spend a couple of hours. Walking in the dunes, enjoying the nature or climbing up to the Lighthouse. You'll find there many possibilities

We were told we had to take the ferry to Palm Beach from Ettalong for something to do so we waited for a warm sunny day and make our way down to the wharf to wait for the ferry. The trip across on the Fantasea took 35 mins and very picturesque as the tide was out so the channels are... More

Spend the day out with the family and enjoyed the Palm Beach Pittwater, Whale Beach and surround area. On a sunny day it is spectacular with plenty of ocean view sites.

This is a scenic small beach that felt off the beaten track on a July Tuesday. Drive the local residential roads, e.g., Whale Beach Rd., if you can.
