“We had such a romantic day here. We rolled out the picnic blanket, popped open a bottle of wine and enjoyed the peaceful surroundings, before dipping in for an afternoon swim.”

With its scenic harbour views, Collins Flat Beach, just north of Sydney city and nestled between North Head and Little Manly Cove, is an idyllic spot for a romantic picnic.

Whether you’re swimming in the calm waters or nibbling on gourmet snacks from a hamper for two, this hidden beach, with a breathtaking view across The Heads, feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
