Cronulla Beach

Enjoy a relaxing day of sunbathing and eating fish and chips or embrace the Aussie lifestyle with a surfing lesson at one of Sydney’s most lively beaches.

Soak up the sun and laid-back vibes at Cronulla Beach, one of the longest stretches of beach in Sydney. A wide range of entertainment and patrolled swimming areas make Cronulla Beach ideal for the whole family. You can rent water bikes and snorkelling gear or get lessons for surfing and stand-up paddleboarding. If watersports aren’t your thing, while away the afternoon with a book in hand, enjoying the soft sand, clear waters and Sydney sunshine.

Relish the vantage point offered by the strip of outdoor cafés along Cronulla Beach.

If you are not lucky enough to spot dolphins playing in the water, there are also offshore whale-watching expeditions available.

Visit the popular fishing spots around Cronulla Beach to try a common pastime enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. There is a variety of species to catch, from flathead to whiting and bream.

Try one of the scenic walking trails available in the Royal National Park, a secluded haven located just outside of Cronulla. Experience the diverse landscapes of this heritage-listed park, from expanses of bushland to barren bluffs and picturesque waterfalls. With many camping grounds and 16,000 hectares (39,536 acres) of parkland, the Royal National Park can be enjoyed for a few hours or days.

Use Sydney’s train system to easily reach Cronulla Beach from the city. There are also buses that pass through the suburb. The beaches and nearby shops are a short walking distance from Cronulla train station. Alternatively, Cronulla is a 45-minute drive from Sydney’s central business district. The Cronulla Surf Life Saving Club, which is responsible for patrolling the beach, is one of the oldest surf clubs in Australia.
