Beautiful Palm Beach – ‘Palmy’ to aficionados – is Sydney’s northernmost destination, a tranquil oasis in an idyllic location just an hour’s drive from the CBD, but a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city and her suburbs.
Uniquely nestled between three bodies of water – Pittwater, the Pacific Ocean, and Broken Bay – Palm Beach has long been the playground of water-lovers, drawn to the iconic and world-renowned Palm Beach itself, for swimming and surfing, and to the myriad boating and kayaking experiences that Pittwater, in particular, has to offer.
Palm Beach sits at the very point of the northern beaches peninsula, the last stop on the journey of the mighty Barrenjoey Road, at the end of the meandering hillside stretch that begins just after Newport, and wends through the pretty beach suburbs of Avalon, Bilgola and Whale Beach.
Urban sprawl is absent here, replaced with a landscape of beach cottages, hillside abodes affording fabulous water views, and laidback village-style shopping and dining. All this, ensconced in an undulating terrain and the natural beauty of the adjacent Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. With water, water everywhere it’s little wonder that this unspoiled piece of Sydney beckons weekenders and holidaymakers seeking relaxation, recreation and rejuvenation!
