Nice rough beach
Aug. 2020 • Friends
Not the best sand but the steep slope makes it good for views of the water. Often good waves but a nice place to swim.

Excellent Beach, great surf
Jul. 2020
Excellent beach, close to shops. A small but popular rockpool can be found at the Southern end near the surf club. A very pretty beach to visit and popular with surfers. Parking can be found at the northern and southern ends of the beach, but is very popular during the summer months. A lawn area at the northern end near the school is a good picnic spot. Keep an eye out for Superb Wrens on the paths from the lawn through to the beach

Good Sydney Northern Beaches beach.
Feb. 2020 • Friends
Upper Northern Beaches of Sydney. Great for surfing ( boards, surf skis, paddle boards), good for body surfing and ok for family swimming but as it can have rips and unpredictable currents pick the right time and day. Swim and stay between flags and look out for ‘beach closed’ signs.

All year round sensational beach and village
Jan. 2020
I may be a little bias here as I live in Avalon beach and have done since 2003.
It has been likened to a mini Byron bay, which is a fair description. Just 1 hour north of Sydney the beach is pristine and the village is a hive of activity. There are some great shops to browse through and a plethora of cafe's and great places for dinner. There's a cinema, several bars and a Woolies supermarket, plus 2 bottle shops in the village.
It's a great place to spend a weekend in the many AIRBNB options around the village. Highly recommend.

Nice beach, but parking too expensive
Dec. 2019 • Family
Great spot on the coast. Enjoyed the beach and shops, but be careful as most of the parking spots are $10 per hour

Great beach, careful of the shore break
Dec. 2019
AVALON is quite a narrow, and at times steep beach, not ideal for exercise, but has a great wave pool and the SLSC is perfectly located with great views.

Visit a Sydney northern beach.
Mar. 2019 • Couples
A very scenic bus ride from Sydney CBD, frequent bus transport. An excellent surf club building & very clean beach. Good supporting shops & eating places.
A good beach for surfers but swim between the flags.

A Family visit to Avalon Beach in January 2019
Jan. 2019 • Family
This was my first visit to a beach in Australia. The first thing that I noticed was just how clean the beach was. Just as we stepped onto the beach we heard the shark sighting alarm. The Volunteer lifeguards were so quick to respond and jumped into their boat to round up all the swimmers to safety. Shortly after that, we spotted an aircraft hovering over the bay and we knew that the warning had come from them. It was very exciting.
This is a beautiful beach with a tidal pool for the little ones. It's well worth a visit.
Visit Beach House for a superb meal of fish and chips.

Afternoon lazing on the beach
Jan. 2019
Very nice beach, bookended by tall headlands. Golden sand, lifeguards on hand & nice to walk up & down. We also had a lovely lunch at the Avalon beach house.
