Gymea Bay Baths Reserve is a bushland reserve providing access to the heritage-listed netted tidal baths on the Hacking River.

The reserve is accessed from the carpark off Ellesmere Road and there is pedestrian-only access down a path and stairs to the waterfront, walkway and tidal baths.

Popular with bushwalkers, swimmers and fishers, the area contains tall forests of native gum trees, verdant bushland and beautiful outlooks over the bay and Port Hacking estuary.

Warning: Pedestrian access to the baths from the carpark is steep in places, has uneven and at times slippery surfaces, and uneven stairs.

    Netted 50 metre baths surrounded by timber walkway.
    The baths are not patrolled by lifeguards.
    Dogs are prohibited in the swimming baths.
