Sydney abounds in white and sandy beaches which cater to all levels of surfing skills, attracting beginners as well as experienced surfers from all over the world. The capital is concurrently the biggest city in Australia and harbors round 70 beaches along its coast, most notably: iconic Bondi and Manly Beach.
Bondi is an absolute MUST for every surf enthusiast! This unique bay has the advantage of an outlying rocky reef, which guarantees constant easy-to-surf waves all year round. Bondi is approx. 1km long and scores 4 on the danger scale, which is relatively low and contributes to excellent surf conditions, especially for beginners.
Dee Why Beach is round 1.2 km long and faces the Tasmanian Sea. The beach first and foremost attracts rather experienced surfers who value powerful point-break waves which guarantee a ride worth remembering. The technical waves are perfectly suited for surfers to apply and further their advanced surfing skills.
Featured on the National Surfing Reserve register, Manly is truly one of the most iconic surfing spots in Australia. ‘Seven Miles from Sydney, but a Thousand Miles from Care,’ refers to the relaxed life at manly Beach, albeit its direct connection to busy Sydney. Habitually steady waves make Manly the perfect place to surf.
There are two things in life you will never forget:
your first wave and your first gal.
