Shoal Point

O'Brien Esplanade Shoal Point Australia


Shoal Point is the northern-most community of the Northern Beaches group, with a visually spectacular coastal beach. At low tide, the beach can almost be mistaken as a small sweeping desert. The sand stretches for hundreds of metres, allowing a close-up view of Green Reef Island. Watch as thousands of tiny blue Soldier Crabs scuttle along the mud flats, burying themselves into the sand. Take a blanket, choose a spot to dig your toes into the sand and watch a sublime sunset. Boats can be launched straight off the beach. An esplanade park provides shade, picnic tables, a playground and barbecues as well as picturesque views of the beach.
