Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Just a short hour drive from Sydney - great getaway place for family. Caves beach is great for young and old. Be prepared to get wet as waves are strong. Go play and wonder into each tiny holes- kids go crazy with hide and seek and water

Visited Caves Beach Hotel
Great selection of beers especially the balter on tap, glasses were charged to the max no flat beers here.
Seafood plate was very nice for 2 as well as the Poke bowl with chicken
Bar staff very polite & bar area very large for quick service
Food service quite quick as well considering it was lunchtime on a Sunday very busy.
Great play area for the kids.
The views are great we were watching the whales as well splashing about.
Well worth a visit there is accommodation behind as well.

A very nice beach, which was virtually deserted when we were there, but I expect it is popular at weekends. The sand was very soft and the surrounding areas seemed to be immaculately well maintained.

Caves Beach is equal in popularity to Blacksmiths Beach South of there near Belmont and North to Catherine Hill Bay South of Wyong. Caves Beach is East of Swansea soon after crossing a bridge near the caravan park on the Pacific Highway.
Visiting there in my youth it was quite isolated whereas now it is a thriving housing estate including a tavern. All these beaches are very popular with picnic goers and surfers alike, with swells reaching 4 to 5 metre swells during inclement weather. Beware, they are real dumpers. Otherwise I would recommend them as a great family destination. They all include amenities and a kiosk. Accomodation is available nearby. Caves beach is particularly romantic, the caves are open to public access. The lighting on a rainy day reduces glare and the stark contrast associated with deep shade makes it an ideal setting for photography. The setting is amenable for large groups of people with limited wheelchair access via a paved thoroughfare. Limited parking is available if you get there early enough as it is very popular during the summer holiday season. I would recommend any of the abovementioned beaches, particularly Caves Beach. Finally, stay hydrated, slip on a hat,slop on some quality sunscreen and, slap on a long sleeved shirt, don't forget the sunnies and make sure to surf between the flags.

Nice beach. Can be considered for day out from Sydney. We went in summer but the day was coulder. On a better day it would have been a much better experience

Beyond gorgeous beach on the coast!
It’s a little hidden so wasn’t too busy which is great. I enjoyed a number of quiet walks and swims in the ocean- with peace and quiet times.

Caves beach is the most amazing place to explore.
However staying at caves beach resort was a disappointment.
The bungalows need some extra needed maintenance. We were given the corner bungalow. I would advise any adults wanting some quiet time to not ask for this bungalow.
It's connected to a gate that provides access to the rest of the resort and the pub. Anytime someone come in or out the gate would bang which is hard enough would cause the wall to rattle.
With it being a popular wedding venue you can imagine the gate was banging a lot.
Saturday and Sunday morning we were woken at 7am to loud music playing in the pub.
It's meant to be for adults only, however kids were running up and down the deck beside this bungalow.
The glasses still have left over orange juice in the bottom of them.
The power went off 3 times. Apparently something faulty.
With these things being said. The pub and food was amazing. We addressed the glasses which were replaced. And of cause the power issue.

I had only seen a couple pictures of the cave before, and didn't think too much of it. Seeing it in person was just amazing. It is not just one cave, but several, and there are multiple entrances. We got great photos from inside and outside the caves, and the kids had a great time running around.
