Tamarama Beach, Bondi

(4.4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Situated between two prominent headlands, with a sand valley to the back, cozy Tamarama Beach is surrounded by pleasant parkland and picnic areas. Often called "Glamarama" because of the alleged abundance of glamorous topless tourists, the beach features one of the smallest strips of sand in the entire region. Remember that due to its deep water and big waves, this beach is considered too dangerous for most swimmers. Never ignore lifeguards’ directions, and keep out of the water altogether when the biggest swells roll in. There’s plenty to do on dry land, as the beach is in the middle of the "Bondi to Bronte Ocean Walk," the most popular coastal walking route in Australia.

  • this is a spectacular little beach not far from Bondi Beach, but it is one of the most dangerous beaches in Sydney. So unless you are an experienced swimmer, this is not a beach for you 
  • We stayed one week at Tamarama, the beach is beautiful as the whole walk linking Tamarama in Bondi. The setting is beautiful, the beautiful coast

  • Excellent beach to spend the day, very good facilities and there is a bar to eat something light or buy drinks. Advisable to walk along the coast to Bondi beach.
