Newport Beach

Natural Attractions

Newport Beach is located to the north of Bungan and south of Bilgola Beach, approximately 40 minutes from Sydney’s CBD and is easily accessible by bus or car. The 1.3 kilometres long beach with reddish golden sands faces east and extends from the rocks at Newport Head.

This is the home beach of three times world surfing champion, Tom Carroll. The surf is however limited to The Peak, an inshore reef toward the northern end. Newport faces due east so is open to swell coming from any direction. A jumble of rocks 250 metres south of the north headland known as The Peak shapes two separate breaks that attract a highly skilled local surfing tribe.

One of Newport’s most distinctive features is a broad flat rock platform at the south end of the beach. The full-size saltwater lap pool atop the platform is an iconic feature of Sydney’s northern beaches, having been a favourite subject of revered Australian photographer Max Dupain in the 1930s and 1950s. Swimming, body-boarding, wind-surfing and fishing are all popular activities at this beach.

Newport not only has a beautiful beach but a growing collection of great places to eat, including restaurants, pubs, diners and cafes.
