Cronulla Beach

Cronulla, derived from an Aboriginal word kurranulla meaning 'place of pink seashells', is located on the Bate Bay coastline in Sydney's south. It is the only Sydney beach that can be reached by train, meaning you can visit without the headache of finding a car park.

Cronulla Beach is patrolled all year round by Sutherland Shire Council's professional lifeguards together with volunteer lifesavers from Cronulla Surf Life Saving Club.

The Cronulla Pavilion and Cronulla Surf Life Saving Club are two prominent buildings located close to the sand, along with a cafe and restaurant. Behind the beach is a large grassed area with plenty of shade and a playground.

The Cronulla Rock Pools are between Cronulla Beach and North Cronulla Beach. The Alley is the local name given to this area. Shark Island is a dangerous reef break located off Cronulla Beach.

North Cronulla , Elouera and Wanda Beaches are the other patrolled beaches along the Bate Bay coastline.

For a top day out at the beach, Cronulla has all the right ingredients - fish and chips, ice-cream and gelato, cool surf shops for beach supplies and accommodation.
