The University of Sydney has the Coastal Studies Unit. They tried to calculate the beaches in Australia. They considered a beach to be a stretch of land longer than 20 m that remains dry during high tide. According to this definition, Australia counts over 10,500 beaches. Therefore, it is no wonder that the marine life and the life on the beach are such an integral part of the Australian culture. You cannot say that you know a city in Australia if you don’t know its beaches. So, if you want to get to know Sydney, here are the Sydney beaches that you need to see and experience.
This is not just among the most popular beaches in Sydney. Manly is among the most popular beaches in the entire Australia. It is the landmark for the surfers and they gather here from all parts of Australia. Since the beach is so popular you will have a hard time finding a place to park. A great idea is to take the ferry to Manly from the center and get an amazing view of the Opera House. Then you just walk along the Corso to the Manly Beach. If you happen to be here in September, don’t miss out on the amazing Manly Jazz Festival that features free funk, jazz and blues concerts along the Manly beachfront.
This beach is near the city center and it is easily reached by the public transportation. Besides the surfing that cannot be avoided on the Sydney Beaches, this place offers something for everybody. The white sand is inviting for those that enjoy beach volleyball. Families will find their place on the northern part of the beach, while the young people have their fun in the southern stretches of the beach. If you are on this beach on the ANZAC Day, you will see a lot of surfers paddling to the Wedding Cake Island from the Coogee to commemorate this important day. You can join them and experience this interesting event.
For a more secluded and private place, you can opt to spend a day at the lovely Fisherman’s Beach. A lovely lawn that stretches to the sea and gradually turns into the sand, protected by the great Long Reef is a nice and romantic place. Fisherman’s Beach is a perfect spot to organize a wedding. It is secluded and it has a lovely view on the beautiful sea dotted by the small fishing boats. This makes it one of the loveliest beach wedding venues in Sydney, very popular among the couples that want to get married by the sea.
It is quite possible to walk from Coogee to Bondi and makes a nice and picturesque walk. While Bondi seems to be the gathering place of surfers from the entire area, there is also this amazing event that puts surfing out of the focus for at least a couple of days. It is the amazing Festival of the Winds. It is a kite flying festival that will sweep you off your feet. You can observe the most amazing kites you’ve ever seen, fly your own or even learn how to make one in numerous kite making workshops.
As if the wondrous sea life and lovely, fine sand aren’t enough for you to love these beaches, they have tons of activities, events and places for you to enjoy them even more. Therefore, visit these beaches and find out what is the best thing about them.
