In collaboration with the Australian Open of Surfing, Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel is creating a pop-up beach bar right on the sand on Manly Beach between February 25 and March 5.

The beach club will run during the nine-day event and will include lounge chairs and a balcony where you can watch the surfers compete, with an-ice cold drink in hand.

The design will be similar to Watsons Bay, with its trademark blue-and-white umbrellas and beach-shack vibe. Local beers from 4 Pines will be available to purchase, as will coconut cocktails. Food options will be light and healthy, with a focus on freshly caught seafood featured in dishes such as Hawaiian poke and fish and chips.

Entry to the beach club is free. There’s also a huge schedule of entertainment, from DJs and acoustic sessions to morning yoga.

From February 25 to March.
