Dixon Park beach has a fantastic walking path with awsome views - great for whale or dolphin spotting. It is very family friendly beach and there is plenty of free car parking.

Not too crowded, clean, parking available, my favorite spot to swim. Waves are usually nice for swimmers and the beach is patrolled by lifeguards

We love Dixon beach, easy parking generally, cafes nearby or take your picnic and sit on the beach, sand is soft and the view always great.

Great beach & location. Nice park for bbq's. Watch the hang gliders go by overhead. They even land in the park at the end of the day. Park shared by bbq-res, hang gliders & its dog friendly at certain hours.

This is one of the better beaches in Newcastle, great location, easy parking and with the park behind it there's lots of open green space, so you can always find a spot even when it's busy.

This is one of my favourite beaches in Newcastle. It is suitable for both adults and children. It has an excellent take away shop on the higher level and plenty of parking within close walking distance, which can be a problem at some beaches.

I love stopping here for a coffee and breather whilst out dog walking along this beach front. This is my favourite point around the centre of a jolly good long beach walk.
