Balmoral Beach, Sydney
Balmoral is my favorite beach in Sydney and a place where i often come. Several times a week sometimes.
It is a very calm beach and is also home to some chique resturants.
Im a fairly comtemplative type of person so late at night on occaions i come down here and sit on my rock (located on on the island next to the beach). Its a good place to think or bring a date or just causally look out onto the sea.
my favorite pace in Sydney without a doubt
Balmoral Beach is one of Sydney’s most exclusive suburbs; with historical Aboriginal sites,Taronga Park Zoo, breathtaking views, stunning architecture, and wonderful gorgeous beaches mixed with a diversity of boutique shops and first class restaurants and cafes, Balmoral/ Mosman is one of Sydney's loveliest suburbs.
Balmoral is really a must do. The Borogegal Aboriginal tribe inhabited the area before the area was settled in 1830 as a whaling station; it now houses Sydney’s most expensive and prestigious real estate.
Mosman is home to some of Sydney’s stunning harbour beaches such as Clifton Gardens, Chinamans, Balmoral, and Obelisk beach. It has some magnificent architecture, where you can find huge Federation mansion to small Victorian cottages.
Mosman is easy to get to by public transport by catching the ferry to Mosman Bay Wharf and connecting to the bus to Mosman Junction.
Balmoral Beach can be reached by catching the ferry to Mosman Wharf and then hopping on the bus to Mosman and walking down Raglan Street to the beach.
From the city you can catch the Balmoral Beach Bus from opposite Wynyard Station.

Balmoral Beach is something very special for a city beach. Quite some distance from the main road and only buses or private vehicles provide access so this is not so frequented by tourists (it's also a very steep route form the main road to the beach). It's a real locals place, but, a very upmarket local beach. Homes in the millions of dollars range see to this :) But its stunning, with spectacular views, relatively under-developed (few cafe/restaurnat options) and, for a large part of it, the beach backs onto the playing oval, providing a tree-lined backdrop and grass access to the water if sand is not your bag. There's also a sea water swimming area built out in the bay and plenty of boats bobbing on the marina.
