Palm Beach has become recognisable around the world as Summer Bay from the Australian TV soap Home and Away. Palm Beach is the exclusive, high-end of Sydney's long stretch of the northern beaches; is everything you'd expect from the insular-peninsula amid the playground of the nation's rich and famous.
Palm Beach still retains traces of its early character; although mansions dominate the southern corner. Most of the beach area, apart from the small protected areas at either end, it is permanently exposed to the elements. Barrenjoey Head looms over North Palm Beach, which is unpatrolled at its furthest tip. This section of the beach is usually where you find the surfers, joggers and hikers on the Barrenjoey Lighthouse bushwalk. Popular activities in Palm Beach include surfing, ball games, bushwalking, walking up sandhills.
The North Palm surf club, is where you will find a kiosk, car park and other facilities are located at roughly in the middle of the beach. This is the ideal place to sit and enjoy the broad ocean view. The southern end of Palm Beach is a more protected environment for swimming than the waves further north. Also there is a 35-metre ocean pool which sits on the rocks at the end of the beach, deep enough for laps but with a shallow end that is ideal for kids. It is well lit at night and has its own shower and toilet.
