Perfect Family Beach
Bronte Beach is one of the most spectacular beaches in the eastern suburbs. It is a small surf beach with white sand and great park lined with bushland and a strip of cafes along Bronte Road.

To get to Bronte beach by public transport, catch bus number 360, 361 and 378 from the city. If you are driving, there is 1 hour metered parking on Bronte Road or unrestricted in other surrounding streets.

You will find plenty of sheltered picnic tables and many electric BBQs, so bring some sausages for an easy lunch. Alternatively Bronte Kiosk is open from 9am 5pm for coffee, snacks or lunch. You will also find other cafes nearby.

Bronte Park has a great playground which features swings, slides and climbing frame and is shaded by large sails.

The surf beach is patrolled by life savers and there is also a rock pool at the southern end, where children can swim if they are not confident in the surf.

Bronte Surf Life Saving Club, which is situated on the esplanade overlooking Bronte beach features a function room and is available for hire for weddings, private parties, business conferences, workshops and other special occasions. The venue can accommodate up to 180 people and its modern open auditorium offers a bar with surround audio and visual facilities. Large bi-fold glass doors open onto balconies overlooking the beach and park.

Showers and toilets are available as are bubbles and taps. Dogs are allowed leashed on the promenade.

If you enjoy walking, you will love a walk along the clifftops and beaches all the way from South Head to La Perouse. The best known walk is from Bondi to Coogee which stretches for 6 kilometres and Dover Heights to The Gap which is approximately 5km.

Other beaches to visit in the area include:
