Bare your feet and stop the watch
Whether by ferry, boat, bus, car, foot or bike … however you get there, it doesn't matter and whatever stresses you carry, will all just wash away when you hit Watson's Bay.
It seems to be an instinctive thing, making a full stop in the sand, bare feet, a few rocks to skim while being in awe of the city outline and the skyline beauty changing as the sun sets at a pleasant pace.
Departing is not what needs to happen anytime soon and nor does it.
We found Watson's Bay Hotel to be extremely full and kids weren't amongst the crowd. Considering it was a Saturday at dusk, this is to be expected. So instead we opted for a cold drink and a serving of hot chips at "Doyles on the Wharf", not to be mistaken for "Doyles on the Beach". "Doyles on the Wharf" is a cheaper priced take away/bistro menu and set up.
You do need to buy food from the shop in order to be served alcoholic drinks out the back. So with our coke, iced choc and 2 crisp cold whites ($22) we shared a large serving of hot chips ($8), $30 all up. We sat inside with large windows beside our table, which we had wide open, overlooking the water from the wharf towards the city and the beach to our side. An awesome spot, cheap as chips!
