A Hampton-Inspired Beach Club: Watson's Bay Hotel in Australia

Issue 76 · Nautical Notes · June 11, 2013

We have a thing for beach clubs: the Ace Swim Club and the Montauk Surf Lodge are two of our favorites, but if we were to travel Down Under we wouldn't mind a swim (or a drink) at Watson's Bay Beach Club.

Located just outside Sydney, Watson's Bay is a favorite getaway destination for Sydney dwellers. One of the latest lodging projects is the Watson's Bay Boutique Hotel and Beach Club owned by Arthur Laundry and Fraser Short. Last year, they renovated the space and turned it into a tropical play area where guests can frolic by the sea drinking umbrella-festooned cocktails. For more information, go to Watson's Beach Bar and Club.
