Where is it? In nooks, crannies and secluded bays all round Sydney Harbour.
“The Spit to Manly walk is a favourite. It provides a good house perve through posh Sydney suburbs then heads into the National Park, past secret beaches to clifftop views of the Harbour.” Elisabeth Knowles
When you think of Sydney’s beaches, you immediately think of Bondi, but there are idyllic sandy spots on the harbour that every visitor should seek out. From the family-oriented Shark Beach at Nielsen Park (don’t worry it’s got a net), to the well-known Watson’s Bay and postcard pretty Parsley Bay, every beach is a suprise. Perhaps the most hidden of all, and little-known even to Sydneysiders, is Milk Beach, which you can reach from the track alongside historic Strickland House in Vaucluse. For an engrossing coastal walk that uncovers beaches on the northern side of the Harbour, do the Spit Bridge to Manly walk.
