Sydney Beaches

Sydney is home to some of the finest and most famous beaches in the world. There are dozens of surf beaches and harbour coves waiting for you to explore. We recommend that you wear a hat and put on your sun lotion - the Aussie sun is harsh! Amongst the most famous and accessible beaches are:

Bondi Beach

Popular with backpackers, billionaires, board riders and the body beautiful, Bondi is one of Sydney's most stunning beaches. A walk along the beachfront promenade gives you the chance to experience its carefree sun-drenched lifestyle. Bondi Beach is about 30 minutes by public transport from the Sydney city centre.

The Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach Walk is a 6km (one way) picturesque coastal route that weaves across beaches, bays, cliffs and stunning Pacific Ocean views.

Manly Beach

Nestled between a tranquil inner-harbour beach on one side and a popular Pacific Ocean surf beach on the other, Manly combines a laid-back attitude with a sophisticated dining scene and stylish shopping.

Ferries leave from Circular Quay to Manly regularly.
