Flat Rock Beach
Your perfect secret getaway beach. Hidden from houses and only accessible by boat (or a long bushwalk!), Flat Rock Beach is surrounded by the pristine Garigal National Park – waterfalls, wildlife and complete seclusion. This picnic spot is protected from most wind directions and perfect for either deepwater or shore anchoring.

Sirius Cove
Deep in the main Sydney Harbour is Sirius Cove, with a large dog-friendly park and beach. Protected from all but the southerlies, Sirius Cove offers a quiet anchorage for picnics or even a night on the boat. You’ll even hear the nearby residents of Taronga Zoo at dawn. A quintessential Sydney adventure.

Balmoral Beach
The classic picture perfect Sydney harbour beach. Plenty of room for anchoring and ideal for swimming for the whole family. Restaurants cafes and a parade of beautiful people at all times of the day.

Chinamans Beach
If Balmoral is busy, nearby Chinamans Beach is a great option. With plenty of room for boats to anchor, and an easy swim to shore, Chinamans is a favourite for summer afternoons. Pick up your hamburgers from the waterfront cafes nearby and enjoy a protected, safe harbour beach with all the family.

Athol Bay
Frequented by party boats and harbour cruises, Athol Bay is where the action is. With deep water and postcard views of the City and Harbour Bridge, Athol Bay is an instagrammers dream. Protected from the summer nor-easter, it’s a great afternoon option.

Manly Cove
With easy access to restaurants, cafes and the buzz of Manly, this is a fun spot for the whole family. With a few public moorings and plenty of deepwater anchor locations, you’re also protected from the summer afternoon sea breeze. If you’re lucky, wave down the ice cream boat for your afternoon sugar rush.
