Tamarama Beach, Bondi

4.5
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.

  • Beautiful beach complete with a little food and drink/cold sweet treats place, bathrooms etc. Nice light-tan, pretty fine sand and turquoise water. Fairly strong waves, at least the days I went. A fair amount of surfers as well.
  • Beauty of a park, direct connection to water/sand and has room for tons of people. Barbeques and a kids play area mean everyone has what they need and if you get bored there is a lovely coffee stand selling all your hearts desires
  • Quiet beach, beautiful crystal blue waters and a relaxing environment. The accumulation of shells that were left behind by the high tide was a bit uncomfortable to walk on though.
  • Amazing beach with beautiful water
  • One of Sydney's most popular walks is from Bondi To Coogee Beach, In the middle of this walk is one of my favourite beaches Tamarama Beach
