I am very lucky to live a 5 minute walk from beautiful Balmoral Beach which is one of Sydney's harbour beach gems. It is a place which is lovely all year long and people of all shapes and sizes come to: swim, walk the dog, have a coffee with friends, jog around the oval, paddle in the gentle harbour beaches...

Clean, quiet and peaceful. No real tourists here, mostly locals. Best Harbour beach in Sydney. Cafés and bottle shop, restaurants and boat hire. It's all here

I am one of the fortunate people who live in Balmoral and can honestly say, it is one of the best places in this world to live or visit.

This is the most beautiful beach in Sydney. I live nearby and try to walk along as often as possible. Great place for kids and oldies alike.

Balmoral Beach is the perfect get away beach if you want to stay away from the masses and want to swim without huge coastal waves. This beach is the perfect place to bring a picnic or visit one of the quiet surrounding cafes. A great beach for small children to swim. Plenty of shade is available along the tree lined... More

We enjoy the walk along this beach, a hidden gem from the tourists crowd. If you want to avoid the crowd of Bondi, visit the Balmoral in Mosman. Try the famous fish and chips, fresh and popular with the locals. There are other eateries along the esplanade, do stop for coffee and ice cream. There is a little nice garden... More

What a great find!! Beach is beautiful and the water clean. Great for walks or taking the little children on to the playgrounds. The eateries are excellent in the vicinity. A must.

A wander along balmoral beach is a wander along no other beach quite like it in the world. Apart from the usual sights like I'll men in saggy swimmer X, there are dressed up dogs, ladies in active wear sipping coffee and complaining about their latest first world problem. A

Tom Roberts, Arthur Streeton and Charles Condor would still recognise this part of the Harbour ( as long as they faced the water) from their days of 'plein air' painting here. You can enjoy the walk along the beach and over to the little island and lose the sense of the city's rush and bustle; bring the grandkids and show... More
