Whether you would like to roll out your beach towel and enjoy sunbathing or prefer to go swimming to keep the summer heat at bay, you are spoilt for choice. The pristine sands at this beach are ideal for a late afternoon picnic with friends, to end just in time before the sun sets.
For nature lovers looking for a place to take a nice stroll, the South Head Heritage Trail is ideal for evening walks as you soak in the marvellous views across the expansive South Pacific Ocean. The walk follows the clear footpath past a number of historic sites before leading to a series of steps and onto the beach.
Make your way to the historic Hornby Lighthouse, which is a significant icon near this beach. It is important to note that this is a designated nudist beach, so clothing is optional. As such, some visitors may have reservations about visiting the beach with little kids.
Remember to carry beach essentials; such as a hat, sunscreen and drinking water for a memorable experience. You may want to carry your binoculars, as well if you intend to go birdwatching. This also comes in handy at the beach because it is not uncommon to see whales swimming close to the shore.
Take some time to visit the aptly-named Camp Cove located on the protected side of the South Head. This is a popular spot for swimming and beach-relaxing. There is a kiosk and toilet block towards the northern end of Camp Cove. You may also want to check out the Cannon – a placement that has been onsite from 1890 and that makes for an exciting attraction for history buffs.
