3 minute walk from entry path on Beatty St.
Forty Baskets Beach, Balgowlah Heights, is a peaceful spot to enjoy a warm sunny day. With a netted section for swimmers to enjoy and would make for a sweet picnic spot with some nice shady grass. This beach gave us all the fam-friendly vibes with a swing set and BBQ facilities, change/bathrooms too.
There is no direct parking for this one but you can find street parking on Beatty St. and take the stairs down which is around a 3-5 minute walk. The name ‘Forty Baskets’ originates from a man who once caught 40 baskets of fish back in 1885. Forty Baskets is one of the many beaches that runs along the Manly Scenic Walk. Which in total is, 10km one way.
And just between us… If you head around the rocks to the right end of the beach you will find a little slice of heaven, some of the clearest water holes between the rocks for a little private dip or just to sit and read a book perched on the rocks. You’re welcome!
