It’s very soggy outside…not the most photogenic day. I’m keeping the cameras dry and staying inside – for now. Hopefully, this wild east coast low will stir up the swell and tomorrow will be on.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been enjoying time at home, re-exploring Sydney. Usually, I’m on beaches with waves – being an enthusiastic surfer…but sometimes; it’s nice to venture to the waveless harbour beaches of Sydney – to chill and not worry about losing one of your kids in the white water.
Here are my east-side harbour faves – Neilsen Park, Camp Cove and Parsley Bay. These beaches are great at sunset, as they mostly face west – good in the middle of winter!
I didn’t even know this cove existed, and it’s about 10 minutes drive from Bondi. It’s a park and harbour beach with a walking bridge crossing the bay. Great for the kiddos.
Good looking little beach this one. Nice and close to the ocean, so the water is typically crystal clear. I reckon sunset is the best time to visit here. Great little cafe up the East corner. Very chilled vibe.
Nielsen does get waves when it’s massive. Bit of a novelty surf as swell bounces around in the harbour like a ping-pong ball and eventually breaks here. Sandy beach and sectioned off swim area – perfect for laps!
Go for a drive and explore Sydney’s neighbourhoods, you’ll be surprised what you find. For other ideas around Sydney, check out Sydney.com
