If you love traveling, you probably have Sydney as one of your to-go destinations. With that being said, Sydney is full of wonderful beaches that you should visit while you are there. Check out 10 of the best beaches in Sydney:
1. Freshwater Beach
This beach spanning just 350 metres might not sound impressive, but it’s definitely one of the best beaches to go surfing. In fact, Duke Kahanamoku himself held the first surfing demonstration in Australia on this very beach.
2. Dee Why Beach
Finding activities to do at Dee Why will never be an issue, not with rock pools, a fully-fenced playground, coffee shops, live music and restaurants all along the beachfront. You will also see black sand at this beach, something considerably unique when compared to other beaches.
3. Manly Beach
You can reach this beach after a 30-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay. It’s known as God’s Country, presumably due to the cafes and cosmopolitan mall located here. Whatever the case might be, you will be sure to fall in love with the waves here.
4. Bondi Beach
Bondi Beach has plenty to offer its visitors. While you’re there, you can enjoy photography sessions, as well as swimming and surfing in its clear, turquoise waters. Whether you are just learning to surf or if you are an experienced surfer, the shape of the beach features separate areas with waves suited for different skill levels.
5. Palm Beach
If you have watched Home and Away, you will recognise this beach. Spanning a total of 2.3 kilometres, you can enjoy more than just the usual stroll on the beach. There’s a golf course and markets for you to explore, along with restaurants for your taste buds.
6. Milk Beach
Here, you can sunbathe to the sight of the world-famous Opera House and Harbour Beach. It might not be the biggest beach around, but its location in a residential area will add to the cosiness of this quaint little beach located in the Vaucluse area.
7. Fisherman’s Beach
Marine lovers can explore all the aquatic life that this sheltered beach reserves. Fisherman’s Beach is surrounded by two headlands, and you can go all the way to the top of Long Reef headland to catch a glimpse of the beautiful sunrise early in the morning, as well.
8. Tamarama Beach
Also known as Glamarama, the Tamarama Beach proves to be a location for challenging swimming sessions. The waves hit the coasts from both sides of the bay, making this one of the more dangerous beaches in Sydney, but a great place for wave-surfing, nonetheless.
9. Little Bay Beach
Visiting in the summer? Get a hideaway from the crowds at bigger beaches by visiting this hidden beach, located just at the end of the Prince Henry development. This beach provides a calmer vibe opposed to the usual high-traffic sites, so be sure to visit if you are looking for relaxation rather than a seaside adventure.
10. Store Beach
Along Collins Beach Road at Manly, you might be lucky enough to spot some Little Penguins, an endangered population at Manly. Remember to bring yourself some snacks to enjoy at the beach after some kayaking.
