Cronulla Beach Walk

Sutherland Shire's beautiful beach
Cronulla is a lovely south Sydney beach with some great surfing waves and a beautiful coastal walk. I have heard about a lot of beach walks from Clovelly beach down to Botany Bay and down till Cronulla, but when a friend suggested to me a walk down from Cronulla down south, I was intrigued to explore the southern side of Cronulla.

The beach has ample parking both on the north and south side. Cronulla also has a train station close to the beach that makes it very handy for beach visitors using the train to travel.

Taking nearly 2 hours, this walk starting from North Cronulla, makes its way down to South Cronulla, Shelly Beach, Port Hacking till you see Royal National Park and Bundeena in the distance. The walk crosses the ocean pools at South Cronulla beach.

Bass & Flinders Point, the southern tip of the beach, is a beautiful location for small weddings and wedding photos. As we walked past it soaking the scenic views with Port Hacking and Bundeena in the distance, the chairs were being arranged for an intimate wedding ceremony. Salmon Haul Reserve that is located next to Bass and Flinders Point is an ideal venue for larger weddings and picnics.

If you have plenty of time or an additional day, take the old ferry (wharf is behind the railway station) to Bundeena across the bay for more beaches in the National Park.

This beach is not overly packed and with much less people than the other city beaches and beautiful golden sand the whole way, it's surely a must visit.

As we continued our walk we reached a little park at the end of a cliff. Quiet and secluded this park was the perfect place to get into some training. I'm sure the views and the scenery will leave anyone wanting for more.
