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

Great place to visit. It was not overly crowded when we went there, but the sands and the surf were really excellent.

Balmoral is kind of hidden and unknown to most people, unless you live nearby. I didnt know about this place until I moved up to Cremorne, and immediately fell in love with the place. The beach is really sheltered, there are places to enjoy both takeaway and fine dining fare, and during the year there are food and wine festivals... More

Balmoral is a lovely beach for all except those who require surf. It is well sheltered, and the water and the sand are ideal for people of all ages. There are great views from the raised piece of land which divides the two parts of the beach. We were fortunate in visiting twice in lovely warm weather in late April... More

I loved this beach, it was much quieter than the classic Bondi scene, but had plenty of facilities, chip shops and cafes for all the family's needs, plus a nearby reserve. When I was there it was low season so I guess it's more popular in the summer. Great beach, lovely swimming, cool view from Rocky Point. Bus terminates here... More
