The beaches at Newcastle are so amazing but I love Newie the best. When we were kids we would start at Nobby's and end up at Newie. Catch the 104 bus back to Mayfield West.

Recently moved to living near this beach. Just lovely clear clean green/blue water, always seems to be some surf, and despite being May the water temp is still 20c. Really nice little beach in the heart of Newcastle. Cafes across the road. Appears to never...More

Newcastle Beach is a delight, with beautiful sand and good waves, and it's only a short stroll from the city's downtown area. The surf here tends to dominated by board riders but there are also some historic sea baths at its northern end which is...More

The Newcastle Beach is dedicated to surfers. Most people on this beach are in the ocean, either to watch surfers or to surfer. Some of them are quite confident in surfing. There is a lot of sand for sunbathing, but it seems that those on...More

Nice foreshore walk but needs an upgrade to match other walks in other cities. Beach is clean and well maintained. The baths are old and not much changed in the last 50 years. There are lifeguards even at this time of year.

A perfect beach if you have children as you have the choice of the beach, large artificial pool or swimmable ocean baths. Patrolled by lifeguards and that is a bonus. A takeaway and nearby cafes provide many food options.
