About Palm Beach

Palm Beach is home to Sydney’s most northerly stretch of gorgeous soft sand and a popular destination for beach and surf lovers and fans of the long-running Australian television soap Home and Away, a hit with international audiences.

Sweeping south from Barrenjoey Head, the fine sandy beach and sparkling blue waters are ideal for relaxing, strolling, swimming and surfing. The northern section is blessed with great surf, and the southern end offers swimmers protection with an ocean pool ideal for laps or paddling with children in the shallow end.

Pack a lunch and enjoy a scenic picnic or savour the delicious flavours and great views at popular restaurants such as Jonah’s, Dunes, and The Boathouse Palm Beach. A number of clubs, cafés and takeaway restaurants offer more casual, lower-cost options.

Take a tour and explore the local coastal trails and marine life along the Northern Beaches.

EcoTreasures offer their Hidden Treasures tour. TV fans will be delighted with Flamin’ Galah Sydney’s Palm Beach trip called the Official Home and Away Tour of Summer Bay. You’ll visit locations featured in the TV show.

For fun out of the water, play nine rounds of golf on gorgeous fairways and greens at Palm Beach Golf Course. Follow a splendid trail to the historic Barrenjoey Lighthouse and keeper’s cottages for picturesque views across neighbouring areas and out to sea.

You’ll find boutique accommodation options suited to both short and extended stays in Palm Beach, or explore further afield by taking the ferry to Ettalong, on the NSW Central Coast, where you’ll discover more beautiful beaches and places to stay.
