Parsley Bay, NSW
PARSLEY BAY IS A GREAT PLACE TO TAKE THE KIDS
SNORKELLING OR HANG OUT ON
Parsley Bay is a narrow Harbour inlet between Vaucluse Bay and Watson's Bay. It's well known for its old metal footbridge which crosses over the bay, providing pedestrian access from the suburban streets on either side of the bay.
Though it's a narrow inlet, the beach has a huge area of sand and the water is shallow for a long time. Behind the sand is a massive grassy area, perfect for parties, picnics or a big game of soccer...and behind the grassy area is an incredible playground for the kids! Parsley Bay is also well equipped with picnic tables, bathrooms and showers, and a cafe. It's a great place to take the kids snorkelling or even hang out on a floatie!
The shark net can give some peace of mind if you're taking the kids snorkelling
