Sometimes just want the peace and quiet at the beach
Most of us know already some of the most popular beaches in Sydney including Bondi, Coogee and Manly just to name a few. But what about the hidden and tucked away little beaches?

Following on my recent article here about one of Sydney's hidden gems, Ramsgate Beach, there are plenty more like it.

Here are the top 3 hidden beaches in Sydney

3) Milk Beach

Milk Beach is a small isolated beach which offers a breathtaking view of Sydney and is located at the base of Hermit Bay within Sydney Harbour National Park.

It is easily one of Sydney's Eastern Suburb's well-kept secrets. This is partly due to perhaps the limited access to Milk Beach, however it can be accessed via Public Transport or boat and there is also limited off-street parking.

Surrounded by the Heritage listed Strickland House which is open to the public, you can walk through the house to get to the million dollar views this beach has to offer.

See here for more info on Milk Beach.

2) Chinamans Beach

Besides it being quite an unusual name, Chinamans Beach is situated at the northern end of Mosman. It is inside the Middle Harbour, so the waves are generally quite gentle making this beach the perfect place for a relaxed swim and even a splash about for the kids.

To top it all off, the more popular and much busier stretch of sand is Balmoral Beach and is about one kilometre south so that makes it very easy to visit both beaches in the one day.

And lastly,

1) Lady Martins Beach in Point Piper



Lady Martins Beach rests between two headlands; Point Piper and Woollahra Point. To get to this place, you'll find it down a narrow lane beside Royal Prince Edward Yacht Club.

this is a perfect spot....I was lucky enough to find a large apartment in the 80's there and we would walk down there often, there's never anyone there!
