Clovelly beach and sea pool - Come here if you like snorkelling. Make sure the weather conditions are right and it is a nice day. Bring your mask and snorkel to Clovelly, jump in and spy on the fish that swim past you. Watch out for the famous old Groper, who is nearly a metre long and has been living in these waters for many many years now. He's friendly! This is also a popular place for scuba diving. TIP: This place is best in summer months, it is a bit too cold in winter! Try to pick a day when the sea is calm, so the visibility is best.
Bondi and Manly are great beaches which attract a great number of tourists. However, those are not the only beaches in Sydney area! Head off to Palm Beach in northern shores or south shores to Coogee or Cronulla and hang out with the surfers.
The view from our small unit. Good family beach. Also good for board riders. Whales have been known to enter the bay and frolic on their way south - around sept.
walkway. My brother said that this is a very pleasant walk that he and my sister in law do quite frequently. So, if you catch sight of them say hello from me too.
Panning sw with my back to the coast and overlooking Long Reef Golf course........what a stunning view of the course, beaches and walkway....a lovely part of the coast.
Take the ferry (30 mins) from Circular Quay to Manly Beach, stroll along the shore, enjoy a great meal of fish and chips, walk through the wormhole tunnel (see other tip) or go for a swim...
These photos, as all scenic photos, are best viewed when enlarged..

As described in the previous tip, and the further south you go, the more rugged and awesome the scenery.
Sidewalk cafe's and resturants galore, all with beautiful ocean views.
Jan and I enjoyed a wonderful brunch here, and the Cappucino was delicious..
Lovely hotels and apartments just across the park from the beach. A lovely place to relax, and watch the waves roll in.
And this is where all the action was.. I guess the beach was a little more crowded on this day, than when I was there.
If you have some more time, don't miss the northern suburbs and beaches. We went to Palm beach and along the way you'll see the beaches of Curl Curl and Dee why.
Big waves at Ben Buckler!
The rock weighs 235 tonnes and it is said it was swept up on land by a storm in 1912.
Sydney has amazing beaches in the city, but they are often crowded. If you venture a couple hours north or south you will find beautiful beaches with a lot more privacy.
