Bronte sometimes flies under the radar thanks to Bondi, its famous neighbour, but it’s one of my favourite beaches. It’s not as busy as others in Sydney, and it has the excellent Bronte Baths rock pool at its southern end. For a great view, and great photos, walk along Calga Place, the street behind the baths, and scramble onto the rocks overlooking the beach. I love going to Bronte on a balmy evening in summer. You’ll get the best light around sunset, and there will still be people in the ocean and on the sand. There’s also a nice atmosphere early in the morning, with of people swimming and running—great for action shots.
Great beach. Has an ocean pool, rock pool and surf. There's lifeguards on duty. Watch out for the rip.
Bronte is just over a kilometre’s walk south of Bondi. The beach itself faces east and picks up swell from any direction. An ocean-fed lap pool tucked in beneath the south headland provides one of Sydney’s finest saltwater swim experiences (free entry).
Bronte is a nice beach within walking distance. The sea pool is great but the surf can be big and rough (beach often closed in high swells). There is a lovely (large) family picnic area, nice cafes at the beachfront. Its a popular sport for events and a beautiful space.
Beautiful beach with protected rock pool perfect for young children. Great local cafes for breakfast and lunch. Parking can be a little challenging though.
“Clovelly Beach and walking Distance to Clovelly Hotel for a lovely bite to eat ”
“If you want to explore venues out side of Bondi . Do the Bondi to bronte walk and approx 300 metre up on macpherson street you’ll find this very popular brunch venue. Very busy so try and book a table prior.”
“Tamarama Beach sits between two prominent headlands on the Bondi to Coogee Walk. It has great surfing condtions, but it is prone to strong currents. It is surrounded by parklands. ”
“Gorgeous little beach, you can walk there along the coast. Be careful swimming as the sea is usually rough!”
