Silver Beach is the perfect destination for sea, sun and surf; located in Kurnell. This stretch of beautiful sand fronts the iconic Botany Bay, with beach’s most notable features being the 14 rock walls that are projected from the waters.
The rock walls, which are sometimes referred to as groynes, jut out into the bay – built in 1970 in a bid to control extensive beach erosion at the far eastern end of the stretch.
