Tamarama Beach, Bondi

(300+ reviews on the web)
Beach Nature / Park
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.
