Satisfy your sweet tooth in Cairns.Sydney's sparkling surf

Whether you're a long-term local or just visiting for the weekend, you may find yourself wondering what to do in Sydney this summer. With the weather so hot and the sun so bright, it's hard to go past a trip to one of the city's best beaches for a dip in the sea.

If you are planning a visit, make sure you stay in centrally located holiday accommodation such as Mantra on Kent. With its air conditioned rooms, room service and 24 hour reception you might be tempted to stay in your apartment as the weather heats up, but the beautiful beaches are just a bus ride away!

Bondi

Bondi is iconic, and much loved by locals and tourists alike. It's a cultural hub for artists, surfers, café enthusiasts and sunbathers alike, and there's always plenty of atmosphere to lap up.


"Located in the beautiful suburb of Balmoral, this beach is perfectly positioned with views over Sydney Harbour National Park and through to "the Heads", which is the gateway to Sydney Harbour.


The main area of Bondi is at the Pavillion, which has plenty of cafes, a theatre and even an art gallery to tempt tourists and satisfy locals. The water near here is a great blend of surf and safety, but if you're a real surf enthusiast you'll want to head further south for more gnarly waves.

If you've got kids or are looking for an extra safe swimming spot, head to north Bondi for a patrolled section of water with calm conditions.

Balmoral

Located in the beautiful suburb of Balmoral, this beach is perfectly positioned with views over Sydney Harbour National Park and through to "the Heads", which is the gateway to Sydney Harbour.

The grassy verge is a great spot to relax with a book, some fish and chips and your loved ones, or you could cycle or rollerblade along the path.

At the northern tip of the beach you'll come across a shady park behind an old club building, which will lead you to the secluded Mosman attraction of Chinamans Beach.

Walk to the Bather's Pavillion for showers and change rooms before heading out to the shark net-enclosed swimming area.
