Andrew Donaghy, concierge at the newly revitalised Jonah’s Whale Beach, shares his to-do list when relaxing on Sydney’s laid-back Northern Beaches. jonahs.com.au
A PERFECT MATCH Dine at Jonah’s award-winning restaurant; my top tip is to try the tasting menu. It’s six courses created by executive chef Matteo Zamboni with perfectly matched wines selected by our head sommelier Niels Sluiman. HIGH LIGHT Walk to Barrenjoey Lighthouse for incredible views of the Central Coast, Palm Beach and the ocean, and historic remnants of old lighthouses. Lighthouse tours are also available. ROOM AND BOARD Learn to surf at the southern end of Palm Beach (‘kiddies corner’) with the team from Manly Surf School; group or private lessons are available with all equipment included. A WHALE OF A TIME Take a picnic to Whale Beach. It’s the perfect way to spend your afternoon on one of my favourite beaches; our executive chef packs a hamper full of delicious goodies along with a bottle of Champagne. WATER WORLD Sail on beautiful Pittwater with [yacht charters and accommodation] Taylor Made Escapes, relaxing in sheltered bays and enjoying a swim before returning to Palm Beach.
