Locals know this beautiful beach as the backdrop for the Aussie soap opera "Home and Away," but travelers love the quiet cove on the Pacific Ocean near the Tasman Sea for its white sandy shores, bright blue waters and relaxing vibe.
The scenic beach stretches some three kilometers. Its wavy rips are perfect for boarding, but locals also head to the calm waters of the unique 50-meter ocean swimming pool for early morning laps. Some of Australia’s most exclusive real estate, including homes of famous celebrities and top-notch entrepreneurs, dot the well-forested hillsides surrounding Palm Beach.
Palm Beach is 41 kilometers north of the Sydney central business district at the end of Barrenjoey Road between Pittwater and Broken Bay. The beach, which has pubic toilets, showers and changing facilities, is easily accessible via public transportation using the L90 from Wynyard Station. Locals often refer to Palm Beach as “Palmy.”
