Little Bay Beach live cam

Beachcam offline?  

Council’s beach cams operate in a difficult environment where sea spray, heavy rainfall, vandalism and storm damage may take the cameras offline for a period of time.  Council automatically monitors availability of the beach cameras however repairs to bring them back online are not always quick and easy.

There is no need to contact Council regarding beach cams being offline as we already know, and rest assured that we are working to bring them back online.

Important notice

Pieces of material containing asbestos (mainly fibrous cement sheeting) have been found regularly at Little Bay Beach since an initial report in August 2020. Randwick City Council is continuing to inspect and remove visible material and is also developing options for longer term remediation. Find out more about Council's asbestos management at Little Bay Beach.


Little Bay Beach is one of Sydney's undiscovered jewels. A 'secret' beach popular with locals, it's well protected from large coastal swells making it perfect for swimming and snorkelling. Its golden sands are popular with families while the rock ledges to the north and south are well-known, but sometimes dangerous, fishing spots.

Access to the secluded beach is via a steep timber staircase. Take Pine Avenue off Anzac Parade and there is parking on the street. A café is located in the Prince Henry Centre towards the top of the beach near the chapel.

Public toilets and change rooms are located on the timber staircase about halfway down to the beach.

The beach is not patrolled by Randwick City Lifeguards or Surf Lifesavers.

Dogs, alcohol and glass bottles are not permitted on the beach area.

The NSW Office of Environment and Heritage Beachwatch program advises as a general precaution to avoid swimming during and for 24-hours after heavy rain. Stormwater runoff from surrounding streets drain to the beach which may pollute the water.
