It’s no secret that the natural beauty of the Northern Beaches makes it an ideal holiday destination, and an even more attractive neighbourhood for those looking to enjoy waterside living.

Aside from being blessed with breathtaking yet calming views all around, the Northern Beaches has plenty of local dining favourites – eateries where you can enjoy great food and fabulous scenery.
