Top 5 Sydney Beaches To Visit This Summer
Did you know that in just one year, 7 million people visit Manly and the Manly Ferry travels the equivalent distance of going around the world 2 times? One of the best things about Manly Beach is this scenic ferry ride you take to get there. Surrounded by the stunning harbour, you embark on a journey to arrive only at one of the best beaches in Sydney. Enjoy a little fun in the sun during the day and finish it off with a drink at night at the Sugar Lounge bar, situated right on Manly’s beachfront.
Freshwater beach is just a short walk from Manly and is situated between two headlands, providing excellent sun protection from the nor’easter. Its best features include a 50 metre rock pool, consistent waves and a rich history. It is renowned by the famous Hawaiian ‘Duke’ Kahanamoku, for popularising surfboard riding. Duke carved a surfboard from a piece of local timber and demonstrated surfing to an excited crowd back on January 15, 1915. This historic event is now commemorated by a life-size statue of Duke situated on the northern headland.
Since 2007, Bondi has held the record for the largest swimsuit photo shoot ever, with 1,010 bikini babes taking part in a cosmopolitan magazine shoot on the beach. When visiting the iconic Bondi beach, be sure to pack one of your most stylish bikinis and head to North Bondi to enjoy a refreshing swim during the day and a light snack or drink in the afternoon from the large selection of cafes and bars nearby.
Embark on the coastal walk from Bondi to Bronte beach and be treated to a quiet and serene location. Although boasting quite a small area of sandy beach after a promenade and sea wall were constructed in 1914, Bronte beach remains a popular spot to visit among locals and tourists. With great BBQ facilities, sheltered picnic tables and large grass areas, it is an ideal location for families with children to enjoy a day out.
The name Tamarama is believed to be derived from the Aboriginal name ‘Gamma Gamma’ which appeared on maps of the coastline in the 1860’s. Tamarama beach is situated between two headlands and is surrounded by glorious parklands. Equipped with a cafe, playground, BBQ area and amenities, it is a great location to visit with family and friends for an outdoor summer adventure.
