Right in the heart of Cronulla, North Cronulla Beach is a summer favourite with locals and visitors alike.

Getting to North Cronulla Beach

Located between The Wall and Cronulla Beach, with Dunningham Park behind the beach, North Cronulla is opposite the infamous Northies on the corner of Kingsway and Elouera Road


There is dedicated parking at Dunningham Park on Elouera Road but you will be hard pressed to secure a spot in the summer. There is also parking on Prince Street, which is a one way road south. Take Elouera Road to Bando Street which joins up to Prince Street at the roundabout.

Surfing The Alley

Located at the southern end of the beach, the Alley is a rip that creates good breaks and is a popular spot to surf all year round.


South of the beach there are several spots for fishing. Better early in the morning and later in the afternoon when there are less people around and the fish are more likely to bite.
