Came here via the Ettalong Ferry and stayed for a couple of hours. By the beach for a couple of hours. There is a bus that is timed with the ferries and you can go for one stop over the hill to the main drag.

Went here as a massive Home & Away fan, was not disappointed! Although they weren't filming on the day we went, the guy from the surf club was happy to take us inside to buy some merchandise. Definitely worth a visit.

About an hour north of Sydney, this beach is stunning! Not too crowded either. Great place to relax and take in the views.

The view from barranjoey lighthouse looking down to the beach and Pittwater is as good as it gets. Great beach for swimming in southern corner or north end for bigger surf. Technically part of Sydney but a world away and leaves all Sydney beaches for dead. The Boathouse is definitely worth a visit.

The beach is soooo nice to just sit and watch the surfers and people and their dogs coming and going. Had a drive around the area and it is great to see family owned businesses are everywhere, and none of the corporates have moved in.

Long white beach made famous by the Soapy Home and Away.. I love going there for a walk to watch the Surfers and to eat at The Boathouse I also like to climb up the mountains to the Barrenjoey Lighthouse to see one of the most amazing views in the Northern Beaches.. the speech is an absolute must for locals...

The quintessential Aussie holiday beach. Good for all, young families, oldies, surfers, cool dudes. Beautiful views and huge expanses of sand. Great swimming.
