Widely regarded as the jewel of Sydney Harbor, Camp Cove features white sands and tranquil waters favored by swimmers, snorkelers, and divers. The beach overlooks a stretch of water facing the central business district’s skyline. There’s also a raised promenade on the beach, which offers additional vantage points ideal for watching the sunset or photographing the city. Several food kiosks operate right on the sand, but you can also visit a number of nearby restaurants, famous for their fish and chips. This area is a significant historic site, with a number of indigenous rock engravings of whales and fish. Plenty of parking is available, and rustic changing room facilities are also provided for your convenience. Using our international travel planner, Sydney attractions like Camp Cove can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
