On a road trip up from Sydney to Avoca Beach, I had the privilege of exploring this Central Coast getaway's beauty. Driving along near the beach was magnificent - with winding roads where you overlooked rows of homes.
We stayed in one of the beach houses, no more than a 5 minute walk from the beach. The weather was perfect - the waters, not surprisingly, packed with children and adults enjoying the sun.
Whilst my boyfriend and I explored the beach - walking along the rocks and stretches of water - we discovered a small spot where the rocks led into a shallow cave. Some people crossed over onto the other side of the beach - which meant making a small leap (of faith) and trekking across the rocks. I watched a couple of young boys with their father and a small dog, a small boy and his father going fishing and other tourists checking out the cave before (like myself) settling for this side instead.
A small rocky island sat comfortably not more than 10 metres from the beach. A group of young men had jumped into the water then and made their way across to take pictures, before swimming back.
The magic of the place was that as it was hidden on a corner - you could get some privacy along the beach. Tranquility, fresh air, and the kiss of the sun to add the final touches to a perfect moment.
