The best seaside birthday picnic spots in Sydney
The coves and secluded beaches dotted across Sydney make ideal locations for a birthday picnic or romantic anniversary feast.  Toast your special occasion in style at your own secret spot where you can swim during the warmer months. In the cooler months, laze in the winter sun or pack the games for some laughter-filled fun.

With so many options it’s hard to know where to start. However, these seaside parks or beaches are some of our favourites due to their more secluded locations. Each offers stunning scenery and the perfect destination to relax, enjoy nature or explore.

      • Camp Cove, Watsons Bay
      • Clontarf Reserve, Clontaf
      • Echo Point Park, Roseville Chase
      • Cabarita Park, Cabarita

With a private water taxi, there is no destination you can’t visit around Sydney Harbour. Ask us for more suggestions.

Not keen for a picnic and want something a bit more fancy?  There is a plethora of fantastic restaurants accessible by our unique water taxis.

A very big Thank You for your fantastic service and for providing us an unforgettable experience of NYE on the harbour. Your hospitality and the boat position watching the fireworks really brought this experience to a new level, having previously experienced NYE on the harbour. The 1.5 hour cruising amongst the super boats/yachts was so amazing. My interstate guests were so happy and have said it was an unforgettable amazing experience on the harbour.
