Sydney Harbour is a true natural amphitheatre, a naturalist's paradise and home to an abundance of wildlife that thrive in one of Australia’s most photographed National Parks.
But did you know that it also has its fair share of sandy beaches that are perfect for swimming?
Sydney is certainly well known for its spectacular coastal beaches of Bondi Beach, Coogee Beach, Tamarama Beach and Maroubra Beach, but nestled on the foreshore of Sydney Harbour there are actually a handful of hidden beaches some of which are so hidden they are only accessible by boat or kayak.
These spots are mostly protected from the huge swell off the Pacific Ocean and not only are they perfectly suited for relaxing and picnicking under big shady trees that reach right to the sand, they also offer some of the best views of Sydney Harbour in the entire city.
But accessing these secret spots is not for the faint hearted. It also takes a bit of pre-planning to save yourself wandering into the backyards of Sydneysiders who are lucky enough to call these spots home.
