Whale Beach The Suburb

Whale Beach is a hidden Gem tucked quietly between it's more high profile siblings, Palm Beach to the North and Avalon Beach to the South. Whilst is it signposted off Barrenjoey Road as you head out of Avalon, it is not that simple to find. There are a few winding roads and a few sharp turns to find the sand. For this reason (among others) Whale Beach is usually much quieter and relaxed than the surrounding beaches. Even in the middle of Summer when Palm Beach is jam-packed and Avalon overflowing, Whale Beach can be calm, relaxed and utterly perfect.

Whale Beach is a magical looking beach. Beautifully framed at both north and south ends with high cliffs on which some of Sydney's most beautiful beach houses are built. There is plenty of sand to stretch out on as well as a row of spectacular (and huge!) Norfolk Pines at the back providing much welcomed sun relief for families in the heat of Summer. Add a kids playground, a large and well kept toilet and changing block, a charming ocean pool and the famous surfing break known as The Wedge and it is fair to say Whale Beach really offers something for everyone.

Whale beach has a definite holiday feel about it no matter what time of the year you visit. A gorgeous slice of the Australian coastline, it seems a little protected from urban development and 'progress' which makes it feel so charming and quaint. Let's hope it stays this way. For photographers, Whale Beach is a alluring muse offering stunning sunrises and sunsets. There are lots of beautiful photos of Whale Beach around, from some of the best landscape photographers from all over the world.

Fishermen also flock to Whale Beach as it has accessible rock shelves at both ends of the beach providing access to deep, Pacific water and big pelagic fish at the right time of year! But fishmen must take care. Unfortunately there are incidents every year when fishermen are washed off rocks in large swells, often ending in tragedy. Whale Beach is well know in surfing circles also. The consistent Wedge break at the north end is famous. A lovely shaped left hander, this wave can really work in the right swell. It is not rare to see ex (and current) world campions out there showing the locals how it's done!

Some call Whale Beach the the best kept beach secret in Sydney and it is probably a fair tag. All I can say is you should try them all and make up your own mind!
