Bronte Beach

Bronte Beach is a favourite weekend getaway for Sydney residents, but it also has a charm that attracts foreign travellers. Located just over a kilometre from Bondi, this beach is famous for its surf breaks and excellent swimming conditions.

Families particularly enjoy this part of Sydney due to the several family-friendly activities throughout the area and the laid-back vibe, making for a perfect day out.

Bronte Beach, Pools, Cafe, Parking, Restaurants, BBQ & Accommodation

It’s less busy than Bondi but just as scenic, and the seafront area is bustling with charming, quaint cafes and fish and chips shops. The sea baths are one of the biggest attractions here: a public ocean pool on the cliffs on the beach’s south end. It’s free to use and open all days of the week.

Kids will enjoy the Bronte Park and Miniature Train, which are open every weekend and every day during the spring and summer holidays. The Gallery Shop is an excellent place to visit for visitors who’d like to immerse themselves in arts and crafts. It showcases a vast array of sustainable, world-class art created by Indigenous tribes from all over Australia.

Seasoned and newbie swimmers alike frequent this beach for its great surf breaks. However, swimmers and surfers should exercise caution when getting in the water due to the notorious Bronte Express – a dangerous rip on the beach. Full-time lifeguards patrol the beach daily, making it safer, but even experienced surfers should be careful here. Other than that, the beach is a delightful place to kick back and relax under the sun.

Bronte Beach is, for many, a hidden gem in Sydney. There are still many sites you can visit without having to share a space with hoards of other people, and it’s easy to reach on foot – walk along the path found on top of the hills.
