Bilgola Beach, Sydney’s hidden gem

Awesome Surf Beach
Bilgola Beach is located on Sydney’s northern beaches in between Newport beach to the south and Avalon Beach to the north. It is approximately 45 minutes from Sydney CBD.

A great surf beach, the area is patrolled by lifeguards and for those who prefer to swim in still waters, you will find a rock pool at the southern end of the beach.

The beach is ideal for swimming and surfing, but not really for snorkelling. Ensure you swim between the flags as the southern end often experiences treacherous rips.
