Sydney by the Sea, Bundeena

bundeena beach

Bundeena's tranquil bays and rocky outcrops provide a great estuary for fishing as well as an idylic spot for hiking, kayaking, surfing and paddle boarding on crystal clear waterways.

Head over to Bundeena Kayaks to get in on the local craze of stand-up paddle boarding, a popular Hawaiian water sport that has been described as a cross between surfing and kayaking. Bundeena Kayaks offer a range of kayaking and paddling classes as well as tours of the picturesque bays and beaches.

Go hiking through the Royal National Park to the tip of the stunning Jibbon Headland, which offers spectacular views of the turquoise waters and striking sandstone cliff faces. Discover ancient indigenous carvings and try and spot whales from the headlands during the colder months.

You can also go on a cruise around Port Hacking or catch a ferry across the water to Cronulla.

Enjoy Sydney’s beaches like a local by following these simple beach safety tips.

Always swim between the red and yellow flags – surf lifesavers have identified this area as the safest spot to swim in the water. It’s also a good idea to always swim with a friend.

Make sure you ready any safety signs at the beach and you are always welcome to ask lifeguards for more safety advice. If you find yourself needing help in the water, stay calm and attract attention.
