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.
