I stayed at Avalon Beach in early Feb. I was fortunate enough to be in a place on the beach. Avalon Beach provides amazing sunrises and sunsets. An easy walk to the beach, we swam in the beach pool as the beach was closed for swimming. Water clean and fresh. Sand is golden and the beach isn't very overcrowded.

The swimming area is a little way down the beach, which I'm sure is for very good reason, but be prepared to carry your gear... More

Excellent surfing conditions, a spectacular ocean pool, shade options and the best cafe on any beach in Sydney. Parking is a worry though, especially compared to Newport just down the road which is also pretty good.

The beach is kept very clean. The sand is a fine grain, that is very soft on your bare feet. All sorts of surfers and parasailing happen here
