When I was living in Sydney, people were always harping on about bloody Bondi beach so I wanted to show you guys a few other (better?) places to spend your Sunday afternoons! Nature’s bounty gets amplified in the hidden beaches of Sydney and I found some amazing vistas here. So I sat forget about Bondi, Bronte, Manly and Clovelly beaches – get yourself off that beaten track! In the process I got to explore some of the most amazing beaches in Sydney the names of which are rarely heard – check them out:
1) Lady Martins Beach- Named after Lady Mary Martin, wife of chief justice and politician Sir James Martin; the Lady Martins Beach is a long narrow beach with a small jetty. It is an ideal place for an exclusive dip in the harbour. Lady Martins Beach is reachable only by a narrow lane that passes beside the exclusive Royal Prince Edward Yacht Club, off Wolseley Road but, the short trip up there is worth the take. When you reach the place you will be mesmerized by its soothing and sweeping vistas. This place is secluded, affluent and you may well have the place to yourself (if you can find it!)
2) Milk Beach-It is rightly termed as a hidden gem. Milk Beach offers an impressive view of the Harbour Bridge, city skyline and Rose Bay. Due to its location behind the historic Strickland House, it stands as a perfect spot to watch seaplanes take off. Indeed the sight is heart rendering with the blue dark posing as a perfect backdrop to the whole scene. This place is quite simply awesome!
3) Little Congwong Bay Beach– Positioned in a secluded shore at Botany Bay National Park, the Little Congwong Bay Beach offers atypical mix of the natural surroundings. You will come in close contact with nature here. This small beach is accessible via Anzac Parade. The beach is considered to be Sydney’s best beach, due to its accessibility by public transport. The local restaurants and cafes are at a stone throw distance from here. The beach is particularly known for its cleanliness and the ever endearing vista only adds to its popularity.
4) Flat Rock Beach– Flat Rock Beach is the ideal spot to unwind yourself and spend some relaxing moment amidst nature’s beauty. The beach itself is a secluded sandy area on the shores of Middle Harbour. A nice spot for swimming, relaxing and enjoying the boats as they pass by, you can hire kayaks and spend an afternoon trying not to drown too. It’s found in the North West of Sydney, head for Killarney Heights and you’re nearly there.
5) Obelisk Beach– This is regarded as a favorite beach for the gay and lesbian, sun-lovers, boaties and “bush-walkers”. It is basically a secluded beach on Sydney`s north, near the affluent Mosman. It’s renowned for its serenity, tranquility and incredible views of the South Head. Oh and don’t worry about bring your trunks – it’s a nude beach!!
If you’re fed up with the endless reams of tourists filling up all of Sydney’s beaches, check out these five beauties. You’re almost guaranteed to be the only foreigner there, especially if you come during the Ozzie winter (June, July, August). That’s low season for this mixed up country and there’s are lot more cheap holiday deals this time of year, plus the weather can still be pretty good. Happy travels!
