Best Surf Beach IN Australia

Hi, this is the beach where less tourists go, they all go to Bondi or Manli, and they miss something. You can walk from Bondi beach to Maroubra and end up with a great lunch on the beach or cross the Malabar headland. Worht coming.

Very pretty and fresh air was welcome after a week of rain. Plenty to see and do. We found a great cafe which served delicious food away from the beachfront crazy.

Nice waves... Strong currents but can be very crowded... Great place for evening surf when sun is going down.

Beautiful big white sand beach. Very few people there considering the size of the beach- flags to swim between and life guard on duty. Waves were HUGE and yet the water was only at our knees for most of the time. Beautiful view - great...More

Maroubra is the biggest beach in the eastern suburbs and is pretty easy to park at and easy to find good spots on the sand. The swimming is often good, with good waves above fairly shallow water. Just stay away from the surfers. Unfortunately, the...More
