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...

I wanted a good walk to get a good stretch and get a full movement in the limbs and what was better than a walk around the coast starting in Bondi. There are lots of activities to watch on the beach and everyone was either walking, swimming, running, and of course surfing. The climb was gentle and we passed the... More

The walk around the beach and further to beaches close by provide a great view, medium demand walk and provide wall to wall restaurants, bars and shopping for the traveller or visitor to the area. Safe swimming - between the flags caps off a great day.

Stopped here whilst walking from Bondi to Coogee (a great and highly recommended 5km walk) and had a gluten free freshly grilled baramundi and salad, along with (non gluten free) traditional fish and chips. It was excellent and a reasonable price. Ate it on one of many benches available in the park opposite, just yards from the sea.
