Things to do

Scenic strolls in Balmoral Beach

Balmoral Beach vacation rentals offer direct access to a string of Sydney Harbour National Park walking trails. They wind along the coast and offer magnificent views of the bay. The family-friendly Middle Head walk is popular with locals and visitors alike. As well as sweeping views of Sydney Harbour, you'll also stroll past colonial fortifications, sandstone gun trenches and infamous "Tiger Cage" cells, a remnant of the Vietnam War. Keep walking and you'll hit the award-winning Taronga Zoo, home to Sumatran tigers, Asian elephants and California sea lions, not to mention a menagerie of Australian wildlife.

Activities

Sun-drenched days in Balmoral Beach

In Balmoral Beach, sun, sand and seawater are all top priorities. You'll find the best swimming in front of Balmoral Bathers Pavilion, a heritage-listed building raised in the late 1920s. Calm water and a shark-safe swimming enclosure make it a favorite with families. The Esplanade strip hugs the coast and is lined with cafes, juice bars and trendy restaurants. If you want to burn off some energy, the Balmoral Sailing School rents kayaks, sailboards, SUPs and more. For a secluded sunbathing session head to the northern tip of the beach and follow the shoreline to Chinamans Beach.

Weather

Sultry summers in Balmoral Beach

Sydney is at its best in the summer, when Balmoral Beach is drenched in sunshine. It can get crowded, but with Balmoral Beach vacation rentals you can retreat to your own private enclave. If you want to beat the summer rush consider visiting in November or March. You'll enjoy beach-worthy weather and manageable crowds. Even in winter your chances of sunshine are high. It may not be warm enough to swim, but you can stroll along the coast, enjoy a meal at the Balmoral Bathers Pavilion restaurant or a day trip to Sydney's Central Business District.
