Pearl Beach is a two minute walk from Hamptons on Pearl; a stunning sandy beach, long enough for a decent walk, small enough to feel like a cove. There is an ocean pool, sheltered water and rock pools at one end, and large waves and beautiful scenery at the other. Please note the beach is not patrolled and we recommend swimmers stay towards the southern end of the beach.
Umina Beach can be accessed around the base of Mount Ettalong along the old access road, which offers beautiful views of Pittwater and takes about 20 minutes to walk. Umina Beach is relatively sheltered, patrolled and dog-friendly, with opportunity for surfing at the southern end.
Patonga Beach is an hours bush walk away, or a 10-minute drive, and is a very sheltered, narrow, calm beach ideal for children.
Additional beaches within a short drive include Ettalong, Killcare, Macmasters / Copacabana, and Avoca and Terrigal are approximately 30 minutes drive away.
