Garie Beach Road, Royal National Park
For a more adventurous beach trek, take a drive about 34mi south of Sydney to check out Garie Beach. Located in the Royal National Park, Garie Beach is a great departure from the city’s usual spots, and requires a bit of hiking before you can relax. The sprawling beach is obviously fairly quiet, but rewards its guests with spectacular views.
Little Congwong Beach
Henry Head Lane, La Perouse
If you’re after a tan-line-free swim (read: boobs), head to Little Congwong Beach in Botany Bay. Most local spots take a “clothing-optional” approach to sunbathing, and this little beach is no exception. It tends to be pretty quiet, which means you can spy naked babes from behind your Ray Bans in peace. If it’s all a bit too much, head next door to Congwong Beach for a more appropriate, swimsuited affair.
