The next bay, 600 m to the west, is Taylors Bay; a 300 m wide, V-shaped, southeast-facing bay, largely bordered by densely vegetated slopes of the national park. At the northern apex of the bay is a 50 m long low sand berm (SH 25), backed by a small creek, with a couple of rocks on the beach. It can be accessed on foot or by boat. Three hundred metres to the south, on the western side of the bay is a 50 m long strip of east-facing sand and narrow sand flats (SH 26), backed by densely vegetated slopes, with trees overhanging the beach, and bordered by the rocky shore. Six hundred metres further south, on the eastern tip of Bradleys Head is 100 m long strip of sand and backing grass (SH 27), largely fronted by intertidal rock flats up to 50 m wide. The Bradleys Head road terminates just above the beach providing ready access.
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.
None, except during huge outside swell when surfers head for Dobroyd Point, Grotto Head, Edwards and Balmoral beaches.
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.Read less
