Nice quiet beach, during weekends and school holidays it is patrolled by life guards. Cafe at beach serves a variety of fare that is well priced. Parking can be a challenge during busy times.

A right peach of a beach. Glorious golden sand. A fantastic 50m rock pool perfect for swimming a few laps. Coffee shack at the back of the beach. All in all a real treat.

Friends had their wedding on the beach here and all the locals were respectful of privacy and space. A beautiful little hidden cove nestled into a quiet leafy neighborhood

This is a family beach as Bilgola is a small community of residential houses with no commerce. The waves and surf can be challenging but there is a great seawater pool at the southern end of the beach which has a shallow area for smaller...More
