Bronte is my favourite Sydney beach. It's almost never as crowded as Bondi but just as easy to get to by bus from Bondi Junction. There is a great strip of cafés serving variety of lunches and sandwiches and even a fish and chip shop. It also has more communal BBQs than many beaches and a good size grass area... More

Whether you want a quick paddle, build sand castles with the kids or have a picnic in the park area and take advantage of the playground you'd be pressed to find a nicer spot. Parking can be difficult but get there early to beat the crowds or better still, do the coastal walk.

We took a bus from the CBD to Bronte and then had a few coffees at the local cafes there and then walked to Coogee. We weren't in any hurry and the weather was pleasant so about an hour and a half later we were in Coogee. It was an easy going walk with beautiful scenery and it was good... 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
