Things To Do
As a beachside suburb, Curl Curl boasts two fantastic beaches, North Curl Curl and South Curl Curl. Both beaches offer consistent surf conditions, attracting both local and visiting surfers all year round. North Curl Curl is known for its off-the-rock surf and often less crowded surf breaks, whereas South Curl Curl has a large rock pool, perfect for those who’d prefer a swim rather than a surf.
Beyond the beaches, Curl Curl provides ample opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts. The coastal walk from Curl Curl to Freshwater is a must-do, offering panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and Sydney’s northern coastline. For dog owners, there’s an off-leash dog park at the northern end of the beach and a large, fenced dog park at Adam Street Reserve.
Although Curl Curl itself is more residential, its close proximity to Dee Why and Freshwater means plenty of dining options are just a short walk or drive away. From charming coastal cafes to sophisticated restaurants, there’s something for every palate. For a quick bite after your beach time, don’t miss out on ‘Gusto on the Beach’, a cafe right on South Curl Curl beach serving up delicious, fresh food.
There are limited accommodation options directly in Curl Curl. However, the neighbouring suburbs of Manly, Freshwater, and Dee Why offer a range of options from upscale hotels to boutique bed-and-breakfasts. You can also find numerous vacation rentals if you prefer a home-like environment during your stay.
Curl Curl is easily accessible by public transportation from central Sydney. The B-Line bus service offers frequent and direct connections to the city, making the journey seamless and convenient. By car, it’s a mere half an hour drive from the heart of Sydney.
