Learn More about Bronte Beach

Bronte Beach is a small beach in Sydney



A small but recreational beach on Nelson Bay in the suburbs of Sydney



Bronte is 2 kilometers south of Bondi Beach and north of the larger Coogee Beach.
The three beaches are connected by a coastal pathway popular with tourists, local runners, and walkers.


Not as well known and popular as Bondi Beach




Bronte Beach is a pretty beach next to the first one; it is preceded by a forest and a huge lawn with lots of barbecues (which Australians love) arranged on it, just before the beach itself of fine sand. 
On the right, a natural swimming pool gives the children the possibility to play in the water without being pushed by big waves.
It is framed by cliffs and hills. It is pleasant, relaxing, nice


The road of 2,5 km which connects the beaches of Bondi and Bronte 



A really impressive and pleasant route to go in any season, even in winter. 
The route starts from the peaceful resort of Bronte and its beautiful sandy beach, goes up a stretch between a green park surrounded by luxury villas, the product on a rocky promontory, where the crash of the waves of the sea, continues offering superb views, a beautiful cove beyond Bondi Beach, one of the most fashionable of Sydney, is frequented by swimmers by surfers. 

In winter, the beaches are almost deserted, but there is always some neck-breaker that faces the cold water.
For the other nine months of the year the place u invaded by bathers.

Along the promenade, you will find a jogging path, with tools and information on the exercises to be performed.

 You can access Bronte by bus 378 that leaves from the center, and once you get to Bondi, the suggestion is to take the bus to Watson Bay and then towards the center with the ferry that runs along the entire bay
