#1 of 7 in Parks in Pittwater
Practice your surfing skills at Avalon Beach, noted for a small natural rock pool at its southern end. This ocean pool is located under a cliff, which shelters it from high winds and provides a convenient viewing platform. Take advantage of the parking areas and tourist amenities located at the northern end of the beach, and use the Avalon shopping center, within walking distance of the water, for all your last-minute beach needs. Please remember that this beach is potentially hazardous for inexperienced swimmers, despite being patrolled by lifeguards, and that the safest swimming area is at the rock pool. Surfers are advised to always stay between the flags marking the safe zone. Put Avalon Beach at the forefront of your travel plans using our Pittwater visit planner .

    A stunning beach offering excellent surf at both ends and the north end can hold particularly big swells. A great reef barrel at the south end. Also good for families as it's patrolled.  more »

    Amazing beach. Unique. Fairly crowed. Great life guards. Saved my sister - she was caught between the waves and the reef. Very choppy water. Don't go unless you like very strong waves.
