Palm Beach is a beachside suburb located 40 kilometers north of Sydney. Part of the Northern Beaches area, Palm Beach is located at the tip of a peninsula between Pittwater and Broken Bay. This spectacular beach is well known as it has been the backdrop for popular television shows like Home and Away. For a lovely beach getaway, check out the holiday rentals in Palm Beach.
Why Palm Beach?
The coastline outside of Sydney is home to impressive white sand beaches. In Palm Beach, join the locals for sailing, surfing, and sunbathing. Choose Palm Beach accommodation for all the space and amenities you need to make the most of your trip. After an active day learning to surf, you might want to throw some fresh fish on the barbeque at your holiday rental and relax for the night.
What To See And Do?
Palm Beach is known for its simple pleasures. A vacation here will be sure to include digging your toes into the sand for some sunbathing and relaxation time. Many of the best things to do feature the local landscape, including rock climbing. Along the beach there are big sandstone boulders that attract rock climbers.
Palm Beach is also home to one of the biggest surf clubs in New South Wales. Surfers come from Sydney and beyond to participate. Whether you’re a novice or expert surfer, you will improve your skills during a trip to Palm Beach. Other fun activities to try include sailing, fishing, tennis, and golf at the local Palm Beach Golf Club.
While Palm Beach is stunning in its own right, many visitors take a day away from the beach to check out Sydney. No trip to Sydney would be complete without checking out major attractions including the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. You might also want to explore the streets of Chinatown or the plants in the National Botanic Gardens.
Top Local Attractions
While Sydney has a certain allure, there are also many top local attractions right within and close by to Palm Beach. Some beach bums might want to check out nearby beaches including Broken Bay and Whale Beach. Palm Beach is also very close to the Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park. One beautiful local landmark worth a visit is the Barrenjoey Lighthouse.
Another fun thing to do is to take a ride on the Palm Beach Seaplane. While this service is used by locals to reach destinations such as Sydney’s eastern suburbs, it is also a fun source of entertainment. To get out on the water, there is also a local ferry service that connects Palm Beach with nearby beach towns.
Travellers have a wide variety of choice when it comes to Northern Beaches accommodation. By choosing Palm Beach holiday rentals you will get more space and amenities for your money. Picture a beach villa overlooking the ocean with your own rooftop deck, barbeque, and swimming pool. There are modern multi-bedroom homes for families or romantic beachfront villas for romantic trips. Set the stage for a perfect beach vacation with a spacious rental complete with a stocked kitchen.
See what one of our travellers had to say about Palm Beach!
Two monthsago I drove up from Sydney with the family to Palm Beach in Queensland and stayed right on the beach.
Palm Beach is my favourite place because every morning at 5:00am when you look out the kitchen window you have a front seat view of the sun rising and reflecting off the sea - the view is amazing and takes your breath away. The sound of the waves all day and night help you relax and forget about the business and the rush of life around you. I love walking every morning and evening on the beach and meeting the locals. Love the waves and feeling of the sand under my feet. The sand is so clean, white and fine - it just slips through your fingers!
I loved the exercise machines they had on the beach - there is one every few hundred metres. It’s all amazingly set up and really convenient for those wanting to exercise on holiday.
We would hire a movie, make our dinner and watch the movie once the sun had set. Some evenings we would all just sit on the balcony and chat while listening to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore.
Absolutely a place I will be going back to visit. Loved it!!
