  • Sand was soft, water was wet. Overall it was adequate.
  • Gibsons Beach is to the left of the popular tourist (but very small ) beach of Watson's Bay as you look out to the sea. There is more sand and much more space for families and children and the sand is cleaner and much nicer than Watson's Bay. Don't get me wrong, I love Watson's Bay, but only for using the ferry, or eating at the three restaurants/eateries there. Gibson's has everything. The beach is softly shelving into the sea, the waves are gentle and there are no tourists gawking around. It also backs onto the Gibson's Beach nature reserve so plenty of space and shade for little ones and anyone who needs to take ten out of the sun.
