Avalon Beach lies between two headlands in Sydney's Northern Beaches region just east of, and a short walk from, Barrenjoey Rd.

The main beach is patrolled by surf lifesavers. With a well-formed right break, the beach is an attraction for surfers.

At the southern end of the beach is a large saltwater pool which provides a protected environment for adults and children alike who prefer to swim in calmer waters.

The beach is an hour's drive from the Sydney city centre. By bus takes at least a quarter hour more.
