Sydney's beaches, ocean pools and coastal walks

Beach life is fused to city life in Sydney, so you can mix urban pleasures with swimming, surfing and refreshing seaside hikes.

Sydney is very much a marine city. At its coastal edge the Pacific Ocean delivers non-stop surf to easy-going beachside suburbs like Dee Why, Manly, Bondi and Coogee. Around the vast inner harbour, an intricate system of waterways supports an excellent ferry system and beautiful water views for the inner city. To make the most of Sydney's connection with the ocean, put some time aside for sea-scented adventures.
