Washaway Beach

Washaway Beach II

Washaway Beach is nestled between Dobroyd Head and Grotto Point in Clontarf / Manly.  As the name implies, it is occasionally washed away. When fully present the beach is up to 200 m long and faces due east toward Sydney Harbour entrance. Consequently. During high waves the thin veneer of sand is literally washed away, exposing massive slabs of sandstone, with at best patches of sand visible at low tide. 

Washaway Beach
Washaway beach is a little hideaway just off the Spit to Manly walking track on the eastern side of Grotto Point. The beach is located at the base of 20 m high cliffs and can be reached on foot from Grotto Point Reserve and via a steep climb down the rocks at the northern end of the beach.
