KEEP IN MIND
Parking anywhere in summer is extremely hard to find
With only one road in and out of "the bends", you can run into a lot of traffic - particularly late afternoons in summer. If you're thinking of heading here on a public holiday, be sure to have plenty of your fav tunes or podcasts to listen to in the car, because you'll likely be stuck in traffic for a long time!
Palm Beach is located at the very tip of the Northern Beaches.
Situated on a Peninsula, this gorgeous beach is most famous for its stunning views from the Barrenjoey Lighthouse walk, “kiddies corner” surfing spot, and of course, it’s the backdrop for the popular TV show, Home and Away.
If you’re an early bird, catch a stunning sunrise from the lighthouse as you look over the water to the Central Coast. It’s a little workout, but you’ll feel great and the view from the top is worth it!
Head back down for a coffee and breakfast at the beautiful Boat House Cafe, located next to Palm Beach Golf Club on Station Beach. This trendy cafe is a beach-lover’s dream. I can highly recommend it!
Head down to the main beach and park yourself near the red and yellow flags. If you’re lucky, you might catch a local surf competition during the summer months! If you’re keen to try out your surfing skills but don’t have a board, don’t stress – the Beach Without Sand Surf Shop has got you covered with their surfboard hire! Grab your friends and boogie boards and slide your way down the sand dunes on the north end of the beach! Just be sure you have the energy to walk back up again!
Alternatively, make a sure drive around to the Bible Garden, located on Mitchell Rd. This beautiful garden overlooks Palm Beach from the south end, and is perfect for a springtime picnic!
