Collaroy Beach is a surf beach that adjoins Narrabeen Beach forming a long stretch of coast. Collaroy Beach also forms part of an accessibility precinct that includes an all-abilities playground and access to a FreeWheeler which provides wheelchair access onto the sand and the surf.
Collaroy Beach is partly protected from the wind and swell from the south, making it a perfect beach for beginners, swimmers and families. There is also a saltwater ocean pool however, if you prefer a smaller and quieter beach, just a short walk around the corner you will find Fisherman’s and Long Reef Beach. Don’t forget your snorkel and mask as this is a great snorkelling spot to look for feather stars, heart urchins and sea slugs (also known as nudibranchs).
Due to the long and open stretch of coast at Collaroy-Narrabeen, it is prone to erosion, especially during storm events.
Good swimming conditions. Excellent beach for beginner surfers. Good wind surfing in north easterly or south easterly winds.
Collaroy has parking available that is free for vehicles displaying a Council parking permit and pay ‘n’ display is available for those without. The cost for pay and display parking is listed at the meter. Designated disabled car spaces.
