Northern Beaches Map

Narrabeen Beach

Although not as wide as some of the other northern Sydney beaches, it is over three kilometres long. To the south, it adjoins Collaroy Beach. At Collaroy, there is a rock pool, suitable for young families and those keen to swim away from the surf.

Behind the beach, there are three recreational areas to be enjoyed, Birdwood Park, located behind North Narrabeen Beach near the bridge, along with south and north Narrabeen.

Public facilities include public toilets including disabled, showers, a playground and viewing platform. There is also a picnic area with tables and places for BBQs.


There is usually some surf, with sand breaks all along this long beach. In October 2009, the beach was declared a National Surfing Reserve and with north-easterly winds on big days and a bit of luck, there are excellent surfing conditions to be found.
