Camp cove is a small but beautiful little beach with some fantastic views back towards the city. It has a lovely little cafe that is great for a coffee. Unfortunately, the day we were there it was blowing a gale of over 55 kph so...More

This is a small beach north of Watson's Bay, backing onto houses but with public entrances (and toilets) at the north and south. The sand is great and the water is great but there's no shark net - not that that stops swimmers. Can get...More

Camp Cove Beach is really lovely. The Cafe at the end of the beach sells icecreams, coffee, and various other items. There's parking nearby, or you can catch a ferry to Watsons Bay Wharf and walk around to the beach. There's also a regular bus...More

The beach is very nice not too big so it may be quite crowded on the weekends. There is a small kiosk, a bit expensive for the quality of the food.

Camp Cove - A Perfect Beach This beach sits around a small headland – about .5km from the popular Watsons Bay with the ferry stop. The beach has golden sand and plenty of shade near the Camp Cove Kiosk. The water is gentle and softly...More

the beach is a stunner, you can admire Sydney from a distance while strolling at the beach. There is also a nice walk to the lighthouse nearby.

Forget the car, parking here is a nightmare. We took the ferry from Pyrmont and it was a lovely relaxing journey that zagged across the harbour. The beach is a short walk from the wharf. Bring a mask and snorkel to check out the fish....More

We went there by 6:30 to view the 7:30 sunset. Amazing view. Looks like a painting. As the sun goes down the colours are just amazing. A mixture of yellow, orange and purple. Your eyes will be just filled with colours. First time I have...More

Few visitors to this small sandy beach would know that this was where the British first set foot in Sydney Harbour, so Camp Cove has a deserved place in Australian history. The beach is about an 800 metre walk from the Watsons Bay ferry terminal....More
