Watson's Bay, Sydney

4.7
#1 of 19 in Nature in Sydney
Sitting at the southern head of the massive Sydney Harbour, Watson's Bay offers both a beach-community vibe and outstanding views of the Sydney skyline across the harbor. Relax in the sun on Camp Cove Beach and then choose from one of two coastal walks. The first goes south, providing views of The Gap, a striking ocean cliff. The second goes north, where you can spot the Hornsby Lighthouse. Both routes take about one hour round-trip. Back in Watson's Bay, stop in a restaurant for fresh fish n' chips before heading on to your next destination.

  • Take a ferry ride here or drive, either way the destination is fantastic. Kid friendly and also nice for romantic walks along the beach followed by sunset dinner.  more »
  • Lovely place, with a very nice view of the Gap. It is a little bit far from the main part of Sydney. Nevertheless, It is a gorgeous place with some great restaurants.  more »
