Definitely recommend this beach to tourists and interstate travelers! Bronte is close to Bondi & other local attractions, however, not as busy. There are some excellent cafes nearby including three blue ducks which I can highly recommend! The Bondi to Bronte coastal walk is also fantastic-great views!
