Bondi Beach

It’s Australia’s most famous beach. Often the first port of call for backpackers, billionaires, surfers and sunbathers, Bondi’s golden crescent and clear, turquoise waters never fail to impress. But there’s more to love about Bondi than the sand and surf. A burgeoning food and bar scene, one-off fashion boutiques and luxury accommodation have made Bondi Beach one of the city’s most glamorous destinations. In the side streets you’ll find alfresco cafés, yoga schools and weekend markets, and down on the promenade things are action-packed. Stay awhile and you too will be hooked.

Manly Beach

Sydney’s second most famous beach stretches for nearly two golden kilometres, lined by Norfolk Island pines and scrappy midrise apartment blocks. The southern end of the beach, nearest The Corso, is known as South Steyne, with North Steyne in the centre and Queenscliff at the northern end; each has its own surf lifesaving club.

Bronte Beach

Every year in October and November, half a million people follow the epic coastal walk from Bondi to neighboring Tamarama Beach for Sculpture by the Sea, the world’s largest free outdoor sculpture exhibition. One of the best ways to discover Bronte is through its culinary offerings. Traditionally, this was limited to greasy takeaway joints on Bronte Road and McPherson Street — the suburb’s two retail hubs.

Shelly Beach

Shelly Beach Manly is an excellent beach for families, being quite sheltered, small and at a safe distance from the road. There is even some shade on the beach itself and the rocky patches at each end of the beach are excellent for mini-explorers. The reserve has shady trees and is good for a picnic. There are BBQs there, plus picnic tables though these do get very busy. Paths and steps lead through the bush to a lookout, but this is not a route for strollers.

Palm Beach

Palm Beach, or “Palmy”, lies at the end of a long peninsula, fringed by surf on one side and tranquil Pittwater on the other. Its golden sands and clear waters have inspired Sydney’s wealthy to build holiday houses on its leafy hills. But down on the ground things still feel pretty modest when there’s sand between your toes.
