Beautiful spot in Sydney with a great view of the harbour's entry. The beach is nice and quiet and great for a swim. Bring a camera with a good zoom.

This beach is heaven. Lovely wide stretches of sand. Nice cafes, albeit not cheap. Balmoral is kept spotlessly clean and the water is divine on a sparkling day. Sydney's best harbour beach by far.

Yes alcohol is allowed in the park land. Plastic wine cups are suggested for safety reasons as there are a lot of kids around and we want to provide a safe environment. Enjoy..😄
