We had dinner at the Public Dining Room at 6pm. We so loved the drive to Mosman and the beach looked extraordinary. People swimming and sunbathing. We will make this a must-do from now on!

Historical Balmoral beach is stunning area, old and yet new, a must visit for those visiting Sydney as it is a little different to other Sydney beaches, especially those in the North

We had such a great day out at Balmoral beach. It has everything you need here, showers, toilets, change rooms, plenty of seating, a great playground for children, restaurants, cafes and take away food shops. The beach is beautiful with calm water and the scenery is magnificent. We saw families with young children, couples, friends and elderly all enjoying themselves... More

The northern end shields you from the north easterly winds that are prevalent and is frequented by young families. Easy to get to - some free parking! Loads of food options, but why not... More

Balmoral is stunning on a sunny day. Beach is clean, and there's always enough room on the sand for everyone, even when it's super busy. Cafe's close by are reasonably priced for breakfast and lunch. Only a couple of venues are open for dinner so check before you go. Parking can be a hassle so get to the beach by... More

Our friend brought us here (she lives in Sydney) and we walked along the bath and enjoyed the views, you can sit on the sand or the grass here and there is a netted area for swimming. Nice restaurants around too.
