    Love all the sunning places around here. On concrete for those ready to dive into the water or on the sandy beach for those with minis. Swimming pool is quite nice too! Couldn't go wrong here.

    Not much sand for those who doesn't like Sandy beaches. But rocks may hurt when waves get strong!

    There's a lot of space to lie out in not directly on the sand. Good if you want to avoid bringing beach home with you

    Great beach especially if you don't want to spend too much time looking for parking. Oh and it's free too!

    Fantastic place to snorkel because its protected from most winds so visibility is usually good. Great place for a night dive as well.

    Some of the best snorkelling so close to home. You got options of sand and no sand if you want. Great day out - do some laps of the 'big' pool

    Walk from bondi to really enjoy the experience, and deserve the cool down

    Well known as a good snorkeling beach, here is a special secret insight - there is a great big old groper fish and some smaller ones about half way out. Mind your fingers! Be nice to him/her...

    Let's face it, without sand or surf it's not really a beach...

    Kiosk. Loooooooong long wait for coffee. Pretty average coffee too.

    Bring some munchies with you cause the kiosk is definitely over-priced
