Balmoral Beach is absolutely the best beach for kids and babies! Offering plentiful shade under the fig trees that extends deep into the sand, a fully fenced updated playground, gentle waves for wading, rock pools to explore and vast grassy areas for kicking a ball and picnics - you can't beat Balmoral. If you get there early, free parking can be found a short stroll away, and parents can grab a good quality coffee from the select few cafes in the strip. The best area for kids is next to the Boathouse cafe under the fig trees. The playground is behind you, ice cream shop next to you and plentiful shady beach spots are always available along the shore line. For children able to swim, there is an enclosed sea pool area with shark nets and plenty of room to set up the beach umbrella and watch the kids play in a safe environment. You won't regret making the trek to Balmoral I guarantee it!
