This beach is popular with swimmers and body surfers. The conditions aren't quite right for surfing, but there are times when good waves have been seen. The beach is patrolled most days.
The origin of this suburb's unusual name is unknown. Some locals say Dee Why was the aboriginal word for the area, while others say an early land surveyor marked the letters 'D' and 'Y' on his map. No one really seems to care however - they're too busy enjoying the beach. Address: Dee Why, NSW, 2099.
