The second beach I visited today was Bilgola. It is on the smaller size. Using the Coastal Walk, I arrived from Newport Beach, and looking down from the walking track; this charming little bay was a very welcoming sight. The track contains several steps, but...More

Nice quiet beach, during weekends and school holidays it is patrolled by life guards. Cafe at beach serves a variety of fare that is well priced. Parking can be a challenge during busy times.

A right peach of a beach. Glorious golden sand. A fantastic 50m rock pool perfect for swimming a few laps. Coffee shack at the back of the beach. All in all a real treat.

Friends had their wedding on the beach here and all the locals were respectful of privacy and space. A beautiful little hidden cove nestled into a quiet leafy neighborhood
