Far enough out of the city to be quiet and give you plenty of space at the beach. This is a gorgeous part of Sydney that draws surprisingly few tourists. Particularly good for surfers. It has a reputation for being racist but in reality is no more racist than other parts of Sydney. That being said, if you have a middle eastern background or appearance you might have to deal with rude local boga ..
On the northern side of the headland from South Cronulla Beach this long swathe of sand is divided into North Cronulla, Eloura & Wanda Beach. Lots of surf breaks all along the beach. Plenty of parking and few crowds apart from at the city end on the weekend. Some strong rips, in particular the Alley at the southern end of the beach.
Only accessible by boat or kayak it is a decent paddle from the boat ramp at the end of Prince Charles Prd in Kurnell. Those that make it out here will be rewarded with a beautiful beach in the middle of Sydney that is always empty. This is an important nesting area for some birds so take care.
