Bronte is exceptionally beautiful, and (sometimes) peaceful.

Much more peaceful than Bondi Beach and right next door. Bus 378 (starts from Central rail, then via Oxford St/Bondi Junction) runs every 10 minutes. Bronte has wild surf at times... read more

Much more peaceful than Bondi Beach and right next door. Bus 378 (starts from Central rail, then via Oxford St/Bondi Junction) runs every 10 minutes. Bronte has wild surf at times and the lifeguards close the beach frequently due to this. Then Bronte Baths is only option but has to be the most beautiful ocean baths in Sydney. This beach... More

beautiful, one of the many beautiful beaches Sydney has to offer. There is a dedicated natural swimming pool as well as an ocean kiddie pool for the little ones. Lovely park areas with areas to sit and lots of shops and restaurants close by.

A great family friendly beach, a bogey hole for the weaker swimmers or small children. Cafes nearby, a beach kiosk, even a small train for the littlies to ride on W/E's. A nice park and gully behind with a well equiped playground and bbq's and shelters. Gets busy and popular, particularly on public holidays so arrive early to secure a... More

Love this beach because it has something for everyone. It's small and cute compared to Bondi. There is a dedicated natural swimming pool as well as an ocean kiddie pool for the little ones. Both families and singles go to catch rays. There is a row of nice restaurants to choose from for breakfast, lunch or drinks. Enjoy!

This is a fantastic beach, with grassed areas to sit and many cafes close by. Parking can sometimes be a bit of a problem so be prepared to walk a little if necessary, but it is worth it.

I have previously reviewed the beach walk, but in going through our pictures of this trip ran across a pic of the pool at Bronte. A must see and a wonderful view.

Great places to eat opposite beach. Negative is the 1hr paid parking and very visible parking inspectors.
