Bronte Beach is a small surf beach located in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. It is a popular spot for families as it features great BBQ facilities, sheltered picnic tables, lots of green grassy areas as well as an awesome covered playground.
It is important to swim between the flags as the beach can get dangerous rips during high winds. However a natural tidal rock pool named “bogey hole” at the southern end provides safe swimming in all weather conditions as does the nearby ocean pool.
Unrestricted parking is available at surrounding streets or 1 hour parking on Bronte Road. As this beach is popular during summer, it is a good idea to get there early or alternatively catch public transport. Buses 360, 361 and 378 all stop near the beach.
For refreshments, checkout Bronte Kiosk which is open from 9am to 5pm or visit one of the many cafes on Bronte Road including Caffe Salina, Café Q, G’Day Bronte, Jenny’s Café, Pure Pistachio, Selfish, Swell Restaurant and others.
There is no shade on the beach so make sure you bring plenty of protection, beach umbrellas or tents, especially if you are planning to spend the whole day. You will find bubblers and taps near the beach and on the park as well as showers and toilets.
Bronte Beach is a great family spot and although it can get busy during summer it’s not as crowded as the nearby Bondi Beach.
