Down the hill from New South Head Road in Double Bay lies this harbor-side gem, where locals gather at the outdoor café, on the small spit of sand, or up on the grassy knoll. The main feature is the Murray Rose Pool, actually a portion of the water bordered by a shark net, so you can stroll along the elevated boardwalk that surrounds it and dive in without fear. Take a spot on one of the floating pontoons for a bit of sunbathing.
