Sydney Beaches
Sydney coastline has a diverse variety of beaches. Sydney beaches vary by access, beach structure, facilities, population, etc.

Sydney beach facilities range from bare sand and grass (beaches 50 or so km from Sydney) to extensively populated with all kinds of establishments such as hotels, restaurants and paved footpaths, such as Coogee or Bronte in Eastern Suburbs, within 10 km from Sydney CBD.

Sydney beach locations are scattered all along the coast, the most popular being in the eastern suburbs of Sydney (Bondi, Coogee, Bronte, Clovelly and Maroubra). Most Sydney beaches can be reached by bus or car. The only beach suburb that can be reached by train is in Cronulla. Cronulla is actually one of the best beach suburbs in Sydney as it has several beaches with a good diversity of features and plenty of parking very close to the water.

There are basically two types of beaches in the Sydney area, different by the main purpose of the beach. These are surf beaches, where swimming is difficult, and there are calm beaches that are better for swimming and family activities. If you are into surfing then you will like places such as Cronulla, Manly, Bondi and Maroubra. These beaches are large, sandy and mostly windy. If you just want to relax and have a peaceful day you might such beach as Clovelly, Vaucluse, Coogee, La Perouse and Bronte. Most Sydney beaches have both rocks and sand, with the sand area usually in the middle of the beach and the rocks on either side of the beach. The rocks are great if you want to look for crabs or other sea life, or if you want to fish. Some surf beaches, for example, Bondi, also feature salt-water swimming pools that have been made in the rocks. These are usually calm water pools good for family fun and doing laps, however occasionally on a stormy day they may not be that calm either.

What to do at a Sydney beach is often determined by its features. Many beaches in Sydney have grassy picnic areas, children facilities, cafes, change rooms, showers and public toilets. Such are most beaches in Eastern Suburbs of Sydney: Bronte, Coogee, Bondi, Maroubra. There are often electric barbeque hotplates that can be used free of charge (as in some Sydney parks), which is a great facility supported by local councils. Some beaches have specific features. So, Clovelly has a natural pool coming deep into the shoreline, with rocks forming a barrier from the sea. This makes it a nice and popular snorkeling place and family fun. And of course you can play sport or just sunbake in the sand on any of the Sydney beaches.

Beaches in Sydney are amongst the best in Australia. If you are planning to visit Sydney, experiencing these amazing beaches is a must.
