The warmer months of Sydney are creeping closer, and we all know what that means. Bikinis. Board shorts. Surf boards. Sand. Beach. And if you’re anything like me, you absolute dread heading to the over-crowded beaches of Sydney on a beautiful Saturday morning.
Here’s my alternative. There are countless (well, they can probably be counted) beautiful beaches in Sydney that aren’t full of tourists and screaming children. They are the little hidden gems of this city that are yet to be overtaken by the masses. You’re welcome.
1. Congwong Beach
In the Botany Bay area and right next to La Perouse, this beach is a little more popular due to it’s easy accessibility to the road.
2. Shark Beach
Nielsen Park in the eastern suburbs is one of my favourite places in Sydney, and it just so happens to come with a beautiful beach. Surrounding by netting, Shark Beach is a beautiful spot for a swim and a picnic.
3. Chinamans Beach
Located in Mosman, Chinamans Beach is a local favourite. No waves, no worries.
4. Little Bay Beach
Located behind a large golf course, this gem is tucked away just near Botany Bay.
5. Reef Beach
Located directly opposite Manly beach, Reef Beach is hidden away in Balgowlah Heights.
6. Resolute Beach
Resolute Beach lies within Ku-ring-gai-Chase National Park and needs to be entered via a walking track (or you can pay for vehicle entry to the National Park). You won’t find many people here, that’s for sure.
7. Milk Beach
The perfect spot for an incredible view, Milk Beach is located next to Hermit Bay in Vaucluse.
