Shark Beach Vaucluse
#3 of 4 Outdoor Activities in Vaucluse
It’s quite small, compared to some of the larger Beaches we’ve visited, but it is quite sheltered so there isn’t the continually crashing waves you get at some Beaches.
Shark Beach near Nielsen Park in Vaucluse, Australia, is a great spot, with the added bonus of having a cafe and great restaurant,The Nielsen,so close to the beach.
