Sydneysiders are definitely spoilt for choice when it comes to surf and sand. Sydney’s prime location on the eastern coast means that it has beaches for all reasons and all seasons.
If you’re searching for nice spot to enjoy a picnic and some afternoon drinks, it’s hard to beat Coogee Beach and the licensed parks that surround it. If people watching is more your thing, the hordes of beachgoers soaking up the sun at Bondi Beach and Tamarama are sure to keep you entertained, while Cobblers Beach raises the stakes with its 'clothing optional' policy. The clear and calm waters of Clovelly Beach make it a top pick among snorkellers, while Manly Beach is a popular spot for beachside sports and family activities.
If the holidays have given you a spring in your step and time on your hands, why not take in some spectacular views along the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk? This trail can take anywhere between one and two hours, depending on your stride, but the stunning beaches, parks, rock pools and cliffs will leave you breathless regardless of your pace.
Things to do at the beach include ...
- Playing volleyball at Manly
- Socialising at Bondi
- Snorkelling at Clovelly
- Sunbathing at Cobblers
