Balmoral Baths 02.01.2016

This is a trendy spot located in one of Sydney’s most affluent communities. The baths are quaint and lots of fun. You can dive into deep water from the horseshoe shaped deck. A great place to eat / have coffee and swim. Great facilities and great scenery. Lots of other things to do between swims including a stroll along the promenade. Very busy spot on weekends and hard to find a park – worth the trouble though.

Child friendly 5/5 Рthe beach area is great for kids. Beaches either side of the enclosure are  very safe perfect for toddlers.

My rating 4/5

Congwong Beach 30.12.2015

A safe spot – open to a Southerly swell, but never more than a big chop. OK for a quick dip before dinner at one of the local La Perouse fish shops. A bit too busy on weekends and public holidays for my liking. Nice views out to sea and of Bare Island. Its actually part of the Botany Bay national park although the only wildlife you are likely to see is of the two legged variety or the snake show which is located near the entrance to the beach. Facilities are very ordinary and need an upgrade.
