5 Reasons to Visit Warriewood Beach, Northern Beaches Warriewood Beach – Photo by Maurice van -Creij

The Northern Beaches is well-known for its many beaches. There’s Manly Beach, Shelly Beach, Freshwater Beach, Dee Why Beach, Collaroy Beach, Avalon Beach, Narrabeen Beach, Curl Curl Beach, Queenscliff Beach, and of course, Palm Beach, amongst others. However, one little less-known beach, which is undoubtedly worthy of attention, is Warriewood Beach.

At Beach Stays, we noticed the growing popularity of this picturesque location, which is why we sought-out and secured some lovely holiday homes in  Warriewood Beach, which we’d love you to stay in.

To butter you up into wanting to book accommodation in our new accommodation listings, I thought I’d share with you reasons why you should visit Warriewood Beach in the Northern Beaches.

The excellent surfing conditions

Warriewood Beach is nestled between headlands and is protected from the wind. This makes the surf smaller; however, the northern end offers excellent surfing conditions. The best break occurs during north-east to east swell, and beach breaks usually have a left running into the Point rip.

The beach is not patrolled and has a 6/10 (Moderately hazardous) General Beach Hazard Rating, which is given to beaches by BeachSafe.org.

The thrilling Blowhole

If you are a fan of the TV show Home And Away, you would have seen the Warriewood Blowhole featured a few times over the years. The blowhole, which sits below a 10-metre drop from the cliffs above, is a popular jumping spot for thrillseekers, and it’s also a popular scene for photographers, as you will see from the footage below.

I have to stress the point that jumping from the cliff is extremely dangerous, and the blowhole has claimed many lives. You have been warned!

The secluded Accommodations

One of the reasons why Warriewood is fastly growing in popularity is because it is not known as a tourist area. Thus, it is quieter and more isolated; which is what you can expect from the accommodation also.

There are no large hotels or holiday apartments, just private, secluded holiday houses such as those we offer here at Beach Stays; Oceanview, Aqua Luna, and Hale Kai Warriewood. These three-holiday homes are each located near the beach (within walking distance) and offer guests all the comforts of home, with some added luxuries thrown in.

The shopping

Warriewood Square

For a fly-under-the-radar suburb, there is no shortage of shopping to be done in Warriewood. First, you have the newly renovated Warriewood Square shopping centre, where you will find major retails like Kmart, Woolworths, Coles and Aldi, along with popular brands like Rebel Sport, Cotton On, JB Hi-Fi, Priceline and Sportsgirl. It also has a great food court for a quick pit-stop between shopping.

Along with Warriewood Square, Warriewood is also home to The Beaches Markets, which is held every Friday at Pittwater Rugby Park. The market is best known for its fresh produce, but you can also find plenty more, including sweets, collectables, paultry, and gourmet foods.

The close proximity to Sydney CBD

The suburb of Warriewood is 25 km North of Sydney CBD, which is around a 45-minute drive. This proximity makes it the ideal day-trip destination for locals and easily accessible for tourists.
