Tips For Visiting Congwong Beach La Perouse
Another calm La Perouse beach, Congwong Beach is a sheltered bay located inside the Botany Bay National Park.
The beach is accessed down a 100m path down stairs from the La Perouse Loop Road. Little Congwong Beach is located a further 600m down the track. Look for the sign at the south end of Cann Park. The beach can also be accessed from the carpark on Anzac parade, opposite Endeavour Avenue
In the past Little Congwong has been known as an unofficial nudist beach, however there are signs at the entrance to the beach trail that state clothes must be worn.
Public toilets are available on Anzac Parade near Cann Park, around 50m from where the beach track begins.
There is no drinking water available at the beach. Drinking water available via bubblers at the amenities block, plus from taps in Cann Park.
Take all rubbish with you as there are no bins on the beach.
While the best food option is to take a picnic down to the beach, if you want to buy food there are shops and cafes around 100m from the track beginning, on Anzac Parade. We loved The Boatshed.
There are no lifeguards or lifesavers patrolling the beach, so be safe when you go.
There is also very little in the way of shade on the beach so take down a tent or umbrella with you.
There is free three-hour parking available at Cann Park and near the entry gates on Anzac Parade.
To reach the beach by public transport, take bus L94 or 394 to La Perouse from Circular Quay, Martin Place, or Hyde Park via Maroubra Junction. Visit Transport for NSW for details.
