Why locals recommend it
Bronte sometimes flies under the radar thanks to Bondi, its famous neighbour, but it’s one of my favourite beaches. It’s not as busy as others in Sydney, and it has the excellent Bronte Baths rock pool at its southern end. For a great view, and great photos, walk along Calga Place, the street behind the baths, and scramble onto the rocks overlooking the beach. I love going to Bronte on a balmy evening in summer. You’ll get the best light around sunset, and there will still be people in the ocean and on the sand. There’s also a nice atmosphere early in the morning, with of people swimming and running—great for action shots.
