Darook Park is one of the most lovely spots in the Sutherland Shire. There is lots of shade and a calm, protected beach, perfect for little ones to splash in and it also has onsite toilets and picnic shelters.

It's extra special because it's one of the few west facing beaches in Sydney, so you can watch the sunset over the water as you look out over Gunamatta Bay.

While it's not strictly a dog beach, we often see lots of pups frolicking in the calm waters!

We recommend getting takeaway coffee from the nearby Little Parrot cafe, just a 10 minute walk away. 

Locals call this little slice of paradise the most beautiful beach in the world. Come and find out for yourself!

Warning: locals have pointed out that there are often stingrays about so be careful when going for a dip in the water. 

Address: Find it just off Darook Park Road, Cronulla. There is also access via Nicholson Parade.
