Balmoral beach isn't just a posh name, this is one of the most upmarket neighbourhoods on the northern side of Sydney Harbour. Beautiful homes nestle in the the leafy streets clinging to the hillside, overlooking any number of fancy yachts moored out in the bay. Located only 8km from sowntown Sydney most can only imagine what the real estate prices are like here.

Tucked in behind Middle Head this pair of long crescents of soft white sand are protected from any swells that manage to sneak between the harbour heads. Balmoral actually consists of two beaches, the main beach and Edwards Beaches which are sperated by the outcrop of Rocky Point.

Balmoral has been fairly exclusive for many years. Features such as the Promenade, Esplanade, Rotunda and the Bathers Pavilion date back to the 1920s and 1930s, yet still play a central role in Balmoral life. The listed Rotunda is often used as a venue for performances during the summer and the Promenade / Esplanade are still the centre of activity, offering a selection of upmarket cafes and top notch fish and chips.

Being fairly sheltered Balmoral is a popular with swimmers of all levels and also has a protected swimming area with shark nets. There is also a watersports centre on the western end of Balmoral Beach where you can hire anything from a sailboat to smaller craft such as kayaks, sailboards and stand-up paddleboards allowing you to explore the bay.
