if you want to go swimming but hate sitting on the sand, this is where you need to go. the beach is pretty busy, but there is a huge area of grass just behind the beach where you can stretch out without worrying about getting sand everywhere! if you are planning to walk from coogee to bondi, then this is...

If you're visiting Sydney and love the beach, you'll probably go to Bondi. If you have an hour spare, walk to Bronte Beach and back, starting where Icebergs is located above the rock lap pool. You'll see spectacular views and won't be disappointed! After you arrive and have a look around, head to one of the many cafe's in the... More

Used to go for a run everyday and would stop at the cliffs over the beach to catch my breath and just watch the waves... 30 seconds would turn into 10 minutes before I knew it. A beautiful place.

I know when one thinks Sydney beaches one thinks of the famous Bondi beach, but Bronte Beach is a hidden gem. The views of cliffs with wild waves on a blue ocean is breathtaking. Then there are the multiple cafes you can savour, a huge park to have picnics,or just relax. There is a huge playground for kids, so this... More

My favourite beach in Sydney that quite close from town. It took about 30 mins by bus from CBD area. Not as big as Bondi beach that normally also full of crowds. It has the saltwater pools by the seaside as well as Bondi, but it's free (there's a fee for the one in Bondi). It's a perfect beach for... More

Bronte has to be one of my favourite Sydney beaches. Not as famous and therefore touristic as bondi and quieter than coogee it is a great place to relax or go for a swim/surf. There are some quaint little cafes at the back of the beach where you can grab a bite or drink. I recommend doing the walk from... More

Not as famous or as large as nearby Bondi beach, but definitely worth a visit, if in Sydney for first time. The sea is often wild, and on those days the rip the locals say can take you to New Zealand. But it does have a great ocean swimming pool on the southern end, and it has a great narrow... More

The walk from Bondi Beach to Bronte Beach on the coast walk takes in invigorating ocean air and stunning changing vista as you come around every corner under sandstone cliffs, sculptured by the wind and sea over the millennia. Catch the 380 bus from the city to the world famous Bondi beach. Take the coastal walk to Bronte beach with... More

Bronte Beach is famous for lots of things: it is part of the Coastal Walk from Bondi to Coogee; the walk between Bronte and Bondi is part of Sculptures by the Sea each year, its rocky coast line an excellent platform from which to display some of the Works; and, it is probably the epicentre of Café Society by the...
