Frenchmans Bay Swimming Beach & Reserve La Perouse, Sydney NSW

Start the adventure at the beach and enjoy the pristine sands as the kids play in the shallow waters. The beach is protected, so there are no big waves, perfect for snorkelling and swimming. Container ships arrive and depart regularly at the bay, which makes for excellent viewing. In the distance, planes are taking off from the nearby airport; nothing beats the sight of these big birds as they land.

A short distance from the beach at Frenchmans Bay, there are grassy sections where families can sit to enjoy a picnic. Solo travellers can always enjoy a good read with beautiful views of the bay area. Additional amenities include a free electric BBQ, a small playground, shaded areas, and washroom facilities.

Across the road, there are some cafes and shops. For those interested in the rich history of the bay area, the La Perouse Museum and Visitor Centre offer great antiques and artefacts. The museum is open from 10am to 4pm.

The beach at Frenchmans Bay is a family-friendly location, but dogs, alcohol, and glass bottles are prohibited when visiting. Additionally, lifeguards do not patrol the beach, so it is wise to exercise caution. As a general rule, it is advisable to avoid swimming during heavy rains or 24 hours after that, as runoff water easily pollutes the water.

Frenchmans Bay has something to offer for everyone, so make plans for a vacation or long weekend. Entry is free for all.
