Palm Beach is located on Sydney's northern beaches and is approximately 41km north of Sydney CBD. To the north of Palm beach is Broken Bay and Clareville to the south. It ends in a long spit with ocean on one side and Pittwater on the other, which leads to a point called Barrenjoey.
The area has a number of parks, beaches and sporting areas, including Careel Bay Ovals Sporting Complex which includes facilities for rugby league, soccer and tennis. It also has a golf club, sailing club, surf school and two surf lifesaving clubs.
Palm Beach is a popular family spot as it offers both a surf beach and a calm waters beach, suitable for younger children. Residents and visitors enjoy many water activities including windsurfing, surfing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, swimming and body boarding as well as fishing.
You can catch a ferry from Palm Beach Wharf to The Basin & Mackerel Beach, Ettalong and Bobbin Head or charter a scenic flight over the area or take a stroll up to the historic Barrenjoey lighthouse, which offers spectacular 360 degree views.
Palm Beach has something for everyone including great restaurants such as the popular Boat House, cafes and take away shops. So pack a picnic or bring sausages for a BBQ and enjoy an awesome day on one of Sydney's most spectacular beaches.
