Great place to go with family
There are big waves, surfeurs, and lovely spots to seat on the grass or a table to enjoy a lot

Ok, skipping past the bit where the beach isn't that nice, it's possibly the most boring place on the planet. If your idea of fun is hanging out with people armed with annoying children and silly designer dogs, then it's the place for you. Love the worst that suburbia has to offer? Then you'll love it. Want to drink or eat after 8pm on a Friday or Saturday night, then you are out of luck - the whole beachfront shuts around 9-9:30 because the local residents are too boring to venture out later than that. Avoid. Go to Manly instead. It's just depressing.

The walk to Long Reef is awesome. The sunsets over the lagoon are worth the walk. Then when you get back to Dee Why there is plenty to eat at the beach front.

We ha a superb time here in November. The beach was at its best in this late spring period and prior to sundry disasters engulfing Sydney and Australia in general.. I really love the warm, relaxed vibe here. it may not be as famous as beaches like Bondi or Manly but Dee Why Beach has a solid, understated charm that is all its own.

In 2018, I already wrote and published a review about Dee Why beach. In that review, I enumerated all the essential info that visitors can need. Now, when I wanted to check something, I realized that it disappeared. It wasn't a significant loss, since the beach is there, and I still have the keyboard of my air-book, so everything is ready to replace the lost review. Only now, I'll leave out the info, since they are previously provided by countless reviewers.
Dee Why isn't as famous as Manly or Bondi, but not as impersonal as those mentioned above. Maybe the memories make it friendlier. I quasi see it when we raced with my dog ​​on the wet sand, or when my grandson cries out excitedly at the sight of the first rock pool of his life. The essence of Dee Why beach is the long stretches of golden sands, the tall Norfolk pines that line the road, the monotonous singing of the landing waves, the colorful long line of lively restaurants and cafes, and the army of liberated, joyous people who, after a long confinement, now happily throw themselves into the waves. Unfortunately, the end of summer and cooler days are coming, but there are always determined bathers who are not held back by anything. The timider can sit over their coffee and admire the chasing waves, the ocean as it reflects the sun’s rays and the cormorant who sits on one of the rockpool’s lampposts waiting to strike a careless fish. Dee Why Beach gives happy hour any time and anybody.

Dee Why Beach is located on the northern beaches in Sydney. It’s a busy and popular suburb with a family friendly beach and fabulous Rockpool at the southern end of the beach.

There are plenty of restaurants, cafes and amenities available including a children’s playground and large grassy outdoor picnic area. Parking can be problematic at times, however, a local bus 136 from Manly Wharf runs regularly.

We returned to this area after many years and enjoyed a lovely day. We are not really swimmers but we walked around and had coffee at one of the several cafes in the area. There were quite a few people around and for families this is a perfect spot, as it is for just about everyone else.

I did this walk today even though weather was cloudy & rain, which we eluded, this is a great scenic walk spectacular scenery, can get quite busy so just keep to your right pet friendly on a lead. It was very windy. The boardwalk is amazing you just have to do this walk and get the experience especially with good people, I joined a walking group #TheYesWalkProject it was my first today and I will be joining again on their next walk across the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Come along as well all welcome. x

This beach gives iconic Bondi a run personally think this beach is better and should be showcased more often. It has it all a park for kids, coastal walks, outdoor pools close to cafes and restaurants. Love this place
