Bondi to Bronte Beach: Sydney Coastal Walk
With sweeping views of the spectacular coastline, this is one of the most popular walks in Sydney. The Bondi to Bronte Beach walk is 3.5km, and takes roughly 1 hour, one way. As usual, we took WAY LONGER because we stopped about a gazillion times to take photos, and admire the views. Our walk started at Bondi Beach, after some delicious burgers and a couple of cold beers, and ended at Bronte Beach just before the sun started to dip. This popular walk combines beaches, rockpools, parks and spectacular coastal views the picturesque coastal paths at the edge of Sydney’s eastern suburbs.
Heading towards Tamarama you’ll pass by Mackenzie’s Point Beach, one of the smallest beaches in the State which is only accessible at low tide. The beach is not suitable for swimming, but is a popular surfing spot and a great place to relax by the water.
We followed the coastal trail towards Bronte Beach. Once there we took the stairs near the rock pool to the cliff top board walk for postcard views of Tamarama, Bronte and Bondi to the north and Malabar Headland to the south.
We assumed that we would catch a bus back to our hotel around this time, but we made a spontaneous decision to head down to the beach instead. As you can see in the picture below, the beach looked irresistible!
We settled on the beach and let Eli run into the waves for a while. He is completely oblivious to how strong (and dangerous) water is, so Justin had to hold his arms and lift him up and down in the water. That little guy would dive straight in if he could!
This was the perfect end to a beautiful coastal walk.
