I live here, and I cannot believe my good luck. Newport is one of the best of Sydney's more northern beaches and these are really the jewels amongst Sydney's glorious coastline. Newport is a long, golden sandy beach that is rarely crowded. For most of the year, you can sunbake with no-one else within 30 to 40m. There is a good surf club with change rooms and toilets. At the southern end of the beach there is a rock pool and more change rooms. The most used exits from the beach have open air cold water showers to let you remove salt and sand.

Behind the surf club there is an excellent children's playground shaded by beautiful trees, free barbecues and tables with bench seats where you can eat. A walk of less than 100m places you in a neat shopping area with plenty of cafes and restaurants and an excellent gelateria.

Newport is paradise. So, dear tourists, please leave it uncluttered for residents like me to enjoy. :)

If you're visiting more than one beaches, like me, let me suggest something. From Newport Beach, there is a lovely coastal walk to Bilgola Beach with benches to have a rest and some excellent viewpoints only to enjoy the scenery or take photos as well. Walking up on the stairs and looking back, the long sandy shore opens up for you. Some people are playing volleyballs, while others are waiting in the water with their surfboards to the perfect waves. The water is usually rough, but there are lifeguards. Of course, it doesn’t mean that is recommended to inexperienced swimmers to make the first strokes there. For that purpose, there is a rock pool. With the parking, I can’t help, since I’m using public transport. Sometimes it is much less hassle, and if you don’t want to carry half of the household with you, it is comfortable, and you can avoid the frustration searching a parking spot in vain.

Large parking spot. Shopping and restaurants nearby. The waves are rough most of the time. Lifeguards all around the beach, but would not reccomend for inexperienced swimmers.

Beautiful sea out on the beach. Not too crowded and a pool area with clean toilets adjacent. Shops across the road including a Coles and yummy places to eat. You can find free parking not far from the beach on The Boulevard street.
