The beaches you love pre-kids may not exactly be the best choice post-bub. All of a sudden you start thinking about things like pram access, playgrounds and bathroom facilities.
I used to love the out-of-the way secret spots, you know the ones that aren’t patrolled and make you feel like you might be on a desert island. It’s been a while since I have ventured to one of those spots. Now I’m all about vicinity to, well… everything.
Author, blogger and mother Seana Smith has put together Sydney’s Best Beaches For Kids an eBook exploring all of these little details. It is a really handy guide, on each page there is a different beach (meaning you can just print out the page you need easily) and just about everything you can think of is covered.
Looking for somewhere with a gated playground, some shade, protected swimming areas, parking and, most importantly, easily accessible coffee? No worries, just go down the checklist at the bottom of each page.
The book is in PDF form so you can view it easily on a smart phone, tablet or computer. It costs $7.99 and covers thirty-nine Sydney beaches, from the lovely Palm Beach all the way to Gunnamatta Bay.
I’m a northern beaches person myself and Collaroy stole my heart the second my little lady arrived. As far as I’m concerned, there is no better place for bubs but Sydney’s Best Beaches For Kids has opened my mind. Who knew there were beaches south of Manly?
