This place is amazing for sunny day drinks, seafood lunches, chips with anything or a decent glass or jug of Pimms. It is kid friendly, sits right on the beach and by the Pier where you can get the ferry to the city or from the city if you are a tourist. It is right beside the park so plenty of shade and areas to pay for children. There is also the more widely spaced Gibson’s Beach next few steps along or around the headland of the heritage walk is Camp Cove, a stunning beach.
The hotel staff are so friendly but be sure to reserve a space because at weekends and public holidays it is absolutely rammed with people, it is so popular.
