Set in the affluent suburb of Mosman, Balmoral is a picture perfect harbour beach and one of the most popular on Sydney’s North Shore. The 1 km long expanse is actually made up of 2 beaches separated by Rocky Point island. Edwards beach is on the Northern side and Balmoral beach is on the Southern side. It’s a beautiful part of Sydney, a picture perfect beach holiday postcard with the iconic Bathers Pavilion, public baths and boats in the background.
Past the Southern end of Balmoral at the end of Middle Head road is Cobblers - a tiny secluded beach surrounded by bushland. There are great views of the Harbour and it's a nice spot for a swim and paddle. It’s also designated nude bathing area.
Facing the other side of the Harbour at the intersection of Middle Head road and Chowder Bay road lies Obelisk a ‘gay friendly’ nude beach.
