Sydney beaches

Sydney beaches - // Australia's surfing coast //

Sydney is synonymous with surfing and beaches. Less than 10km from the city centre is Bondi, Australia’s most famous and stylish stretch of sand.

To the north you will discover a long strip of beaches, starting with Manly, about 30 minutes by ferry from the city centre, and tapering to the point of Palm Beach, well known for some of Sydney’s most luxurious beach accommodation, fine restaurants and designer boutiques.

To Sydney's south is Cronulla Beach, the city's longest at 4.8km, offering some of Sydney’s best surfing, a thriving café and restaurant scene and easy access to wonders of the Royal National Park.

Most of Sydney's 37 beaches are situated within 30 minutes of the city centre by public transport. The beaches that feature a Surfing NSW accredited surf school appear on Australia's Surfing Coast, making it easy to decide where best to learn.
