These are Sydney’s Best Secret Beaches

Become a local and escape the overcrowded beaches by finding the secret nooks that are just as nice as Bondi.

These Are Sydney’s Best Secret Beaches

With the countdown to summer on, the weather in most of Australia (sorry Melbourne), is increasingly getting hotter. Australian heat is one of the strongest in the world, and the only way to get through summers down-under is by cooling off in the beautiful oceans.

As coronavirus restrictions have stopped all international travel, we’re very lucky to be stuck in such a beautiful part of the world. It also means that we’ll all be looking to travel around Australia for the time being.

Sydney is popular all year round, but particularly in summer because of their world-famous beaches like Bondi, Manly and Palm Beach. The problem is they’re almost too famous. Holidays like Christmas and New Year’s Day make it almost unbearable to be at these beaches because everyone, and I mean everyone, flocks to them. On top of coronavirus restrictions and fears, these hotspots are definitely not where you want to be spending your summer.

We’ve made a list of the best (and secret) beaches around Sydney that are just as beautiful as Bondi but are much less crowded.

Gordon’s Bay | Coogee
Only accessible via the coastal walkway, Gordon’s Bay is the perfect place for a secluded and private beach experience. Lie upon the rocks as you look out at the crystal-clear water. It doesn’t get much better than this.

Chinamans Beach | Mosman
Only 1km away from the popular Balmoral Beach, Chinamans Beach is the perfect place for this summer. With flat conditions and beautiful views of Middle Harbour, you’ll never want to leave.

Milk Beach | Vaucluse
Tucked away in a cute little nook, Milk Beach is only 50-metres long. It has incredible views of the Harbour Bridge and city skyline, so is the perfect place to spend NYE/Day.

Nielsen Park | Vaucluse
Jump rocks, enclosed waters and The Nielson restaurant and kiosk to help satisfy those afternoon-cravings. Nielsen Park has everything you could want for the perfect day at the beach.

Collins Flat Beach | Manly
Just a 15-minute walk from the ever-popular Manly Beach, Collins Flat Beach not only has calm waters but also its own beach waterfall.

Camp Cove | Watson’s Bay
Found on Short Street in Watson’s Bay, Camp Cove is another secret and quiet beach that is used by locals. You can either relax on the sand/rocks or go snorkelling in the pristine water, the options are endless.

Now you have the local knowledge, start planning that trip to Sydney – you won’t regret it.
