Beach had much to offer and less crowded compared to Manly. Parking could be expensive for $8 per hour and $28 for a day. Walk along beach to north or south; or dip in the rock pool.

Great spot! The rockpool is a perfect oasis to enjoy a swim. Lights come on around sunset as well so it is delightful into the evening

This is one of the traditional beaches of Australia. BE WARNED, Rips are frequent on this beach so be careful and always, always swim between the flags

The beach is beautiful and ideal for surfing and to the north the small, tidal creek is an ideal, safe area for children to play. It is the connection between the Narrabeen Lakes and the ocean and at low tide the water flows seawards leaving...More
