Bronte Beach.

By Mark Treviranus

If you want to feel the sand between your toes and are keen to avoid the tourist hubs of Bondi and Manly – head straight to Bronte beach.

When it comes to the best beaches in Sydney, it’s hard to know where to begin. Around 100 beaches are speckled around the harbour and along the coast, both north and south of the Harbour Bridge. The only vex for travelers and locals can be picking the best one. Except in the far western suburbs, you’re never more than half an hour away from one of the popular Sydney beaches. Avoid the tourists and well-trodden sand of Bondi and Manly and head to Bronte instead. Bronte’s sea pool offers a protected ocean swim and is regarded as one of the best in Sydney – and much like beach culture itself, it’s free. The nearby parkland has spacious barbecue areas for gatherings and is the most family-friendly beach in the Eastern suburbs. On public holidays, the park is packed as parties take place. Bronte’s east-facing beach picks up plenty of swell and swimming can be tricky at times thanks to the bulky headlands and underwater rocks, but the vibes and views on offer make it ideal for those looking to laze around on the beach.
