Clontarf Beach Reviews
Great beach to visit for kids, had playground and lots of shade. Wouldn’t necessarily visit again as too many kids for my liking and parking is a nightmare! more »
Perfect beach for little ones including babies and toddlers. Shallow, calm and very clean and clear water. Plenty of grass areas for a picnic to spend the day out. more »
A great beach to spend a summers day at. Good little cafe as well for some lunch nearby. Parking can test your patience.
One of the beautiful bays of the north shore of Sydney Cafe amenities and swimming beware of sharks 🦈.
