We had pizza and ice cream on the esplanade on a July evening and it was beautiful. I can't wait to come back and do it again in summer, glorious location.

Stopped here on our way out of town to grab a juice from the cafe and wander along the esplanade to the Merewether Baths. Could have sat here for hours watching the surfers and the passing crowd. Plenty of free parking (4hr limit)

Merewether beach is a great place for families and also experienced surfers. Good facilities and several cafes and a restaurant are close by. It is also the site of Newcastle’s Surfest event. Free Parking abounds

Just near Merewether baths, this beach is not overly crowded and the view is amazing. Parking is available and way less crowded than all of the other beach. The waves might be a bit big for inexperienced swimmers, so to swim I always go to...More

A lot of people walk their dogs on the foot path adjacent to the beach. Highly popular. However dogs are not allowed on this beach. There is a designated dog beach some 10 minutes away (Horseshoe Beach) next to Nobby's Beach.
