Hunter Bay is an 800 m wide east-facing bay, bordered by rocky shore, with a central Rocky Point separating the two Balmoral beaches (SH 20 & 21). Edwards Beach (SH 20) is the northern of the two beaches. It is a 430 m long east-facing beach running from Wy-ar-gine Point to the small bridge and sand connected Rocky Point. There is a rock pool at the northern end and a netted pool at the southern end, while boat landing is prohibited. The beach faces east out towards the Heads and while usually calm, does receive ocean swell during high seas which breaks along the shore. The southern half of the beach is backed by a shady foreshore reserve containing amenities, a kiosk, seawall and walkway. Access is via The Esplanade that runs behind Edwards and Balmoral beaches.

Swimming

All the northern Sydney Harbour beaches are relatively safe under normal low wave to calm conditions. Some like Sandy Bay and Sirius Cove never receive ocean waves, while Washaway, Reef and Obelisk commonly receive low swell. The biggest hazard to children and non-swimmers is the often deep water off many of the beaches, and boating activity off some of the beaches.

Surfing

None, except during huge outside swell when surfers head for Dobroyd Point, Grotto Head, Edwards and Balmoral beaches.

Fishing

The entire harbour shoreline attract thousands of anglers, with most fishing from the relatively safe rocks and many jetties, as well as off the beaches fronted by deeper water.
