The iconic, jagged, sandstone cliffs of the southern Central Coast coastline are untouched in this area. Apart from the few early morning fishermen, it feels as if you are the only person on earth. No picture will ever do this landscape justice

Drink your morning coffee with incredible panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and Hawkesbury River.

Drive to Patonga and from the end of the beach follow the trailhead signs to Pearl Beach. A steep incline for the first 10-15 minutes of the walk will get the legs burning. Once it starts to plateau out a little you'll be able to catch glimpses of the Hawkesbury River to your right.

You can veer off the path slightly and set up to watch the sunrise on many of the sandstone rock benches or continue around the path until you reach the Warrah Lookout.
