Always a great spot to visit. Formal and casual dining available with so many restaurants to choose from. Current undergoing some sidewalk and foot path construction. Parking fees along the street and also at the oval.

I took a ferry from Circular Quay to Balmoral beach and saw another beautiful beach, less crowded than bondi or manly and full of nice restaurants and terraces. I had a nice lunch and walk around. Nice beach and slightly quieter

I've been going to Balmoral Beach, on and off, for years. It is a very beautiful beach set in Sydney Harbour. The only down side is that it can be crowded on weekends, especially in summer, but then this is true for many Sydney beaches.

With a variety of outdoor attractions, the
sophisticated harbor suburb of Mosman has something
for everyone. Shoppers can stroll Military Road for
its unique offering of antiques, designer labels, and
hip restaurants and cafes. Nature lovers can take in
spectacular bushwalks like the Taronga to Balmoral
walk, while families can enjoy snorkeling in the
sheltered beaches of Balmoral Beach or scuba diving at

If you park right close to the beach, yes. If you don’t mind parking 200 mts away, you don’t pay.
