I stumbled upon this beach while walking from Watson to Rose Bay. This is such a nice little beach with a great view of the city in the distance. Definitely worth a visit!

Most days,this is a very charming inner harbour beach,with very little water current and waves.It is protected from sharks,and has a great kiosk nearby,and good amenity block on the northern end of the beach.A must do for beach goers who like gentle water.
