Good facilities on the beach and nearby. Beach very clean and tidy. Worth a visit. Part of the route for the Bondi to Coogee walk.

Guarded beach with lots of grass and picnic tables as well as a good and clean changing facilities. Suggest walking here along the coast from Bondi. Bus connections good. Brunch at one of the local cafes was disappointing.

Much cleaner and nicer then Bondi and Coogee. Waves are still great too. Lots of little cafes. Easy to get to by bus from Sydney CBD takes 50mins and costs $3. More families and locals here than the young crowd at Bondi.

My Favourite "eastern suburbs" beach. Yes it is smaller than Bondi and Coogee, but the waves are still strong and fun to surf in. The surrounding areas has some of the best brunch places around. Not to mention a lovely park to just kick the ball around in.

compared to Coogee and especially Bondi, this is more the local beach. Ok, swimming can be challenging and the beach is often closed because of the conditions but there is the beautiful Bronte pool on the south end and Bogeys hole next to is perfect for families with smaller children....

A crowded family beach on a hot summers day, good bathing facilities spectacular cliffs surrounding.Local cafes noisy due to adjacent bus terminus.This is a real challenge to any town planner to completely redevelop an aging somewhat rundown beach environment badly in need of imaginative and total revamp.Early morning swims highly recommended to beat the crowd.

A nice quieter beach a short walk or drive from Bondi. If you have time maybe do the bondi to Bronte coastal walk before having a swim there

the waves here are very choppy which can't be controlled and the lifeguards did put up signs to stop people form going into the sea because of the weather conditions which i thought was good. there was still a lot of surfers going in but i guess thats because they know what they are doing. they have a very big...
