Narrabeen

About Narrabeen

Narrabeen Beach is one of Australia’s iconic surfing and swimming beaches. Over three kilometres of sand stretch from Long Reef in the south to the Narrabeen Lagoon entrance in the north, with four surf lifesaving clubs along the beach providing qualified, volunteer lifesaver patrols to protect swimmers and surf/beach users.

Swimmers should always swim between the flags which are erected while there are patrols present (each Saturday, Sunday and Public Holiday). There are numerous rips along the beach.

Narrabeen Beach Surf Life Saving Club is located in the centre of the beach in a large park with picnic tables, toilets, showers (external) and a popular children’s play area/picnic area/barbecue.

The Surf Club has recently completed extensive rebuilding and with a floor-to-ceiling ocean vista and beautiful polished wooden floors, now offers a very popular venue for weddings and functions.

There are four beaches along the Narrabeen stretch of beach, North Narrabeen, Narrabeen, South Narrabeen and Collaroy beach. Although Collaroy is a separate suburb, its beach lies along the same stretch. All beaches have their own Surf Life Saving Club. There is also a lagoon at Narrabeen. Narrabeen beach is mentioned in the Beach Boys song Surfin’ U.S.A., which in their live concert on 28 November 1992 at North Narrabeen Reserve they performed at the end of the encore.
