Tamarama Beach, Bondi

(4.4/5 based on 280+ 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.

  • We love tamarama beach round the corner from Bondi Huge waves, it's sometimes undeniable but that's ok because it's dramatic and interesting with a great little cafe for a juice or a burger.  more »
  • Good for a swim and sunbathe. You can't surf your fibreglass surfboard when the flags are out so bring a soft top for when the waves are fun. Bikini tops seem to be optional  more »
  • This tiny beach next to Bondi is one to the best beaches in Sydney with some great surfers to watch and nit warm water still in March  more »
