Clontarf Beach is perfect for families with children and it is located on Sydney's North Shore, in Middle Harbour.
The stretch of sand is long and narrow, and the waters are calm and still, making it great for avoiding rough surf. Here you can enjoy a free but luxurious swim, which is much better than any chorine filled swimming pool. The stillness of the water means you can swim long laps, and the sand is perfect for running on. The closed off swimming area will also help protect you from sharks, and the marina provides you with the chance to go sailing
or simply enjoy the relaxing view of yachts bobbing on the harbour
. You can also participate in water sports, including windsurfing and canoeing. Clontarf Beach is a great place to be at any time of the day or year. Children of all ages will enjoy the freedom this beach provides, to swim, play and explore.
A playground provides the younger ones with entertainment, and more mature couples can enjoy the relaxed and romantic environment, especially on a warm summer's night. Address: access through Clontarf Reserve, Sandy Bay Road, Sydney, NSW, 2093.
