About Bungan Beach

The Hidden Gem of the Northern Beaches

  • Bungan Beach is one of the most undeveloped of Pittwater’s ocean beaches and has a wild and unspoiled character that is highly valued by the community, particularly the rugged beauty of the cliff areas.
  • A natural bushland reserve adjoins the dunes and beach without roadway or car park interruptions.
  • Limited access gives visitors to Bungan a remote experience feeling.
  • The dramatic coastal scenery of Bungan is a great attraction for sight-seers, bush walkers, beach-goers and local residents and is occasionally used as a setting for commercial film making and photography.
  • The rock platforms at each end of the beach support significant ecosystems and are Intertidal Protected Areas where all collecting is prohibited.  These areas are significant because they provide refuges for breeding populations of invertebrate animals.  These communities may reproduce and populate adjoining areas.  Rock platforms have also been the site of fossil discovery.
  • Bungan Beach Reserve has recreational values, providing opportunities for activities such as swimming, surfing, sunbathing, bush walking and fishing in a scenic, secluded and natural setting.
  • The beach is patrolled by volunteers of the Bungan Beach Surf Club during the swimming season.  Local residents of Bungan have, for many years, been actively involved in managing and conserving the beach and reserve.  A bush regeneration program has been underway for many years led by local volunteers, the Friends of Bungan.
