Palm Beach, at the tip of Sydney’s Northern Beaches peninsula, is where Sydney’s top wheelers and dealers come to play. Sun-loving days with the glistening waters of Pittwater on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other, Palm Beach is the epitome of Australian beach life that folks from far-off places can only dream about. For Sydneysiders, ‘Palmy’ is as much a weekend getaway as it is a place to call home.
A weekend in Palm Beach is well spent …
Family Fun. Framed by lush greenery and plentiful parkland, Palm Beach is the place to while-away a couple of hours with its great surfing waves at one end and a calmer ocean pool at the other. If you’re keen paddlers, head to Pittwater for a kayak or paddleboard.
Couples Only. Kayak across Pittwater to The Basin where you will be surrounded by Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park and swimming spots – you will feel well off the beaten path. Back on Palm Beach, head up to Barrenjoey Lighthouse for a romantic sunset picnic complete with incredible views over Pittwater and the coastline.
Girl’s Weekend. Gather the girls and stay at a beach house like the incredible homely and beach chic, The Pavilion House. Make like a local and spend days lazing beneath beach umbrellas or have a leisurely brunch at the renowned and ever-popular café, The Boathouse on Pittwater.
