Located on Sydney’s northern beaches, between Manly and Curl Curl Beach, Freshwater Beach is a popular family spot, mainly frequented by locals.

The beach is only about 300 metres long, but it is wide, giving plenty of space to stretch out. It is enclosed by two headlands, giving the beach a private feel.

During the summer, the beach is patrolled by Surf Life Savers, so make sure you swim between the flags. Children can ride their body boards between the flags, although if your kids prefer to surf, they will have to do so away from the flagged area.

For those with young children or wishing to swim laps, you will find a rockpool on the northern end of the beach.

There is no shade, so make sure you bring a beach umbrella or tent for protection.

Paid parking is available at a car park near the beach or you can park at one of the side streets. It is advisable to get to the beach early, as it tends to get busy on the weekends and parking can be difficult.

Next to the beach is a grassy area with a small playground, free BBQs and sheltered tables, which is ideal for picnics and family parties.

Lunch and snacks can be bought at the beach kiosk and there are also several cafes, shops and restaurants along Albert Street – a few blocks away from the beach. Alternatively enjoy a delicious lunch at Harbord Beach Hotel, 29 Moore Road, Freshwater, which is located a block from the beach.

The beach has great amenities including indoor and outdoor showers, change rooms and toilets.
