“A great afternoon out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Go by ferry from circular Quay, and about 30 minutes pleasant sail later arrive in Watson Bay. Be sure to call and have Fish & Chips at Doyle's famous restaurant, or for the budget option visit their takeaway branch. Travel back to Circular Quay by bus or ferry.

“Has everything for a day trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

Great for fish 'n chips by the beach - best to come here by water taxi and see everything the Sydney Harbour has to offer.
Easy to walk and see wonderful beach and rock views, the Heads is nearby and it is a stunning view of the open seas and the opening to Sydney Harbour.

“Most beautiful place in Sydney”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

Went to watsons bay on advice of a specsavers employee, it was breathtaking with a beautiful beach and amazing views of the rocks and sea and a very easy but scenic walk. There is also a very picturesque park and seafood restaurants. It is only 15 minutes on ferry from circular quay.

“Fish and Chips”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

This is a place known for fish and chips and eating seafood. There is a park and places to eat. You can also walk to The Gap, a cliff top look-out spot over the ocean and notorious spot where people have jumped/fallen to their deaths.
