PICTORIAL LOOK AT SYDNEY'S NORTHERN BEACHES!



 


 Monavale beach is a perfect beach for

families, surfers and hang gliders.

 

Here is a photo of the beach with the

closed swimming pool to the left/centre

of the picture and the main beach

stretching across the centre of the

photo.     

Sydney's Northern Beaches is a delight for anyone who loves the ocean. Stunning beaches adorn the coastline and tranquil Pittwater offers a variety of water activities   Anyone with an interest in bush walking and sightseeing, need look no further than Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park. The friendly relaxed lifestyle on the Peninsula makes the Northern Beaches a top spot for visitors for a relaxing and memorable holiday.

 

Sydney is blessed with exceptional beaches and waterways and the most beautiful of all lie to the north of the harbour. 

 

The 30 kilometre stretch of coast from the entrance of Sydney Harbour to Barrenjoey Lighthouse at Palm Beach in the north is known as the Northern Beaches. 

 

To the west are vast areas of National Park and bushland. To the east the South Pacific Ocean with its string of sandy beaches punctuated by bold sandstone headlands. The sand is yellow/white in the south, becoming progressively more golden as you travel north.

It's a great place for surfers who share the beach with sea creatures.

Here is a sponge that has landed on the beach!

 

 

 

On the Northern end of the beach, huge cliffs tower above the beach area.

 

 

 

There's plenty of activity from the surf that continually crashes onto the rocky shore

 

 

 

Rock pools make an interesting place to explore as small sea creatures usually can be found in them.

Discarded shells can be found all the way along the beach.

 

 

 

This shellfish is hanging onto the rock, waiting for the return of the sea!
