Sunday walk around Whale Beach

Quiet and amazing even in Winter. Great views, plenty of exhilarating walks up and down the hills of the surrounding suburbs.

We visited Whale Beach for a several days to break up a 28 hour flight from Minnesota to Denpasar, Bali. I wish we had stayed longer! The Whale Beach area is a lovely little microcosm of Sydney. About an hour outside of downtown Sydney, it was easy to reach, and once we arrived, found that everything you could possibly want... More

This is a lovely beach, off the main road and passing traffic. It is a great surf beach with the well known"Wedge" for surfboard riders at the northern end. It is very pretty with houses facing onto the water or the sand, with a lovely sand beach and a nice surf. There is a safe pool for all at the... More

drove down for a quick dip while staying at nearby Jonahs. Lovely clean well patrolled beach with good facilities and paid parking. I hate having to pay to go to the beach

I went to Whale Beach last weekend. The weather was great and so was the beach. It has a nice rock pool, which is perfect for young kids. The pool is shallow enough to keep the kids safe and on the outside has crabs to look at. Definitely worth a visit.

There are no shops on this beach so bring your own food and drink or go there with a full stomach. There is however bathroom and changing room facilities as well as outdoor shower to wash off the gritty sand. However this beach during the week is quiet and simply stress free and pretty much paradise with no annoying tourists... More

Been to Whale Beach yesterday. Loved the privacy on the beach. Hardly any shops which mates it even more special and calm. The waves were quite strong and ideal for surfers.

One of the nicest beach near Sydney. Wide, beautiful sand, amazing unlimited ocean views. Surf is a bit though so not perfect for swimming every day but what a place for a nice walk or leisurely bronzing session.

A beautiful and picturesque beach with a seawater rock pool, good surf, lots of shady trees, adequate if expensive parking, and a great kiosk.
