Old Wharf Reserve and beach (BB 17) commences 100 m to the north and consists of a 300 m long narrow strip of sand at the base of steep rocky slopes. The Avalon Sailing Club house is located across the centre of the beach, with access down a winding road to the club. Parking is limited and the beach is mainly used as a temporary mooring for the sailing boats.
All the Pittwater beaches have usually low waves to calm conditions. However many are fronted by deep water and care must be taken with children and non-swimmers. Boats are commonly moored off many of the beaches and small boat traffic to the beaches is a potential hazard. Also be careful if swimming in the Basin inlet, particularly in the deep channel on an outgoing tide.
Usually none. However during very big outside swell surfers do find waves at Mackeral and even Snapperman.
The whole of Pittwater shore and estuary is a fisher’s paradise. It offers the beaches, creeks, kilometres of safer rocky shore, as well as the bay fishing.Read less
