This is such a lovely beach which caters for everyone, the pool area is excellent for just lolling around, the surf is good and the rockpool area is fantastic for people of all ages to explore. The parking can be tricky especially the narrow area above the surf club. It is challenging when someone is trying to reverse out and... More

The surf club and baths next to the beach make it a great plane to slams the day. My teenage daughters love going there with friends on the weekend.

Ok. Would not travel to see it. Cafe above at the SLSC, now that is worth it. Good coffee & food with good seating overlooking the beach. Baths 900mts away. Surf house ( expensive ) 200mts away & another cafe. Bring your wallet with you.

Lovely beach, with ocean baths, great walking along the boardwalk and up the hill for those who love a good stroll. Excellent place for taking photos, watching surf comps, enjoying a beer or coffee, small snack or big meal. Parking can be a little hard to find but otherwise we enjoyed our stay. The wind can come up in the... More

I've always loved Merewether, I lived near it while I was at university and loved walking along it after an essay had been completed. The ocean baths are fabulous and there's plenty of room for all. Even at the busiest time in summer you can find a spot to sit, watch the waves, or play a ball game with friends.... More

We operate a window cleaning business in Newcastle area and often choose to lunch on the tables at Merewether beach! The breeze is always a refreshing break and the view from the shady covered tables is breathtaking! Golden sand and blue water! There is a skate park across the road, but I have never encountered any yobbos. Mostly exercise walkers... More
