Avalon

Avalon

A particular favorite with local surfers of all ages and that ‘other’ most popular beach on Sydney’s north shore, Avalon lies between two headlands and is distinguished by its eye-catching, exceedingly soft copper sands, which shimmer in the sun. There’s a pool nearby for those who want to get in the water and avoid the longboards.
