South of Mona Vale Beach in Sydney’s north, lies Warriewood Beach. This small beach is one of the lesser known of Sydney’s northern beaches, but is arguably one of the most picturesque. Just 500m in length, the beach is protected by headlands with dramatic cliffs on either side. With a small carpark nearby, driving here is easy but it can get busy on weekends, so if you’re coming from Sydney city then the bus is a good option.
Warriewood beach is a pretty spot for a picnic, and has free BBQs and a grassy picnic area as well as toilets and showers available. There are also cafes nearby and a kiosk for all your ice-cream needs! A good beach for swimming, and patrolled on weekends so you can safely enjoy the water between the flags. There is also good surf towards the north end, so you can practice your skills here with the locals.
If you’re feeling adventurous, the headland at the north end between Warriewood and Mona Vale is a popular spot for paragliding and this is an incredible way to view this stunning section of coastline. The walking track to the south of the beach is also worth a look, offering spectacular views from the cliff tops. Here you will find the “blowhole” – a popular spot to explore, and with some daredevils jumping into it, although this is extremely dangerous and not recommended.
For those feeling more like just relaxing and enjoying the sunshine, then Warriewood beach has everything that you need as well..sun, sand, refreshing ocean waves and of course ice-cream.
