Sydney Harbour is one of the most popular day charter destination in the world, with the opportunity to cruise with up to 200 guests onboard with Ahoy Club. This past year has been particularly bizarre, but sunnier days are coming and what better way to enjoy the warm Australian summer than onboard a yacht hopping from one hidden beach to another.
Milk Beach, Vaucluse: This harbour bay is only a 50 metres long strip of sand, but the uninterrupted views of the harbour are incredible. Cruise close to shore on your boat and jump into crystal-clear waters for a refreshing swim or enjoy the yacht’s equipment with some from fishing and snorkelling.
Collins Flat Beach, Manly: If you’re trying to impress a loved one with a romantic gesture, look no further than Collins Flat Beach. Nestled between North Head and Little Manly Cove, this little slice of heaven has its own beach waterfall making it the prime location for a romantic picnic prepared by yourself or your crew.
Queens Beach, Vaucluse: Hidden away in the Eastern Suburb of Vaucluse lies a spectacular harbour side beach with sublime views of Sydney Harbour. Take a pre-sunset dip before drying off on deck with a glass of wine as the sunsets over the city skyline – it’s honestly a view like no other.
Lady Martins Beach, Point Piper: Named after the wife of Sir James Martin, Premier of New South Wales in the 1900s, it may be one of the best-kept secrets of the Eastern suburbs and easier to find by boat than it is on foot. Lady Martins Beach is a tranquil beach perfect for chilled, low-key summer afternoons and leisurely dips but as the beach is very narrow, it’s only accessible when the tide low.
Store Beach, Manly: Store Beach is a little strip of sand just off Manly’s North Head in Sydney’s Northern Beaches and only accessible by boat. Surrounded by thick, luscious vegetation you’ll feel a million miles away from the city and crowds. Take the yachts kayak and head off on a little adventure whilst enjoying the summer sun.
