Lovely overall. I often go to Newport Beach with a takeaway lunch. Several times have even seen humpback whales and dolphins quite close to shore. Walking from one end of Newport Beach to the other, is a fantastic workout. There is a pool at one end. Lots of people doing laps there. There are basic changing rooms and toilets near... More

A pleasant clean beach with a kids playground nearby. The beach is patrolled so it's safe. Water was quite rough today. Recommended.

Beautiful beach and adjoining parklands. Busy shopping area with plenty of food choices. Literally walking distance to nearby beaches and Pittwater for on water activities. Good fishing to be had.

Newport is a short walk from the bus stop and shops so it is very convenient. The beach can be dumpy for inexperienced swimmers so be sure to stay inside the flags.

Newport Beach is situated right near the shopping strip and has plenty of off street parking available. Great for families and couples as well, as there is plenty of space on this wide expanse of beach to spread out. Close to eateries and a supermarket so easy to find lunch/dinner. A pretty, not so crowded, Northern Beaches venue.

I have lived in Newport for three years, about 10 minutes walk from the beach. This is a 'locals' beach and does not have the huge number of daytrippers that some of the other Northern Beaches do. That is why I like it! I love the way the waves break over the stormwater outlet at high tide (see photo).

We were spending most of the day with friends in the Pittwater area of Sydney and spent part of the day at Newport Beach which was pretty quiet as it is Australian winter here right now and it was grey and gloomy. Nice long stretch of beach, clean, surrounding area seems pretty safe, we will have to come back in... More

Early morning is a great time. Quiet. Sandy beach. Blue green ocean. The exposed outdoor pool is a challenge but worth it. Adequate changing facilities and good cafes a short walk away.

Nice and clean beach not very busy so is best for a quiet time. Good scenic views all around and plenty of eating options nearby. Parking is paid though.
