We visited this beach several days - thanx to advice we visit and I can say it is a must go beach...we've been walking to it and seeing different spots for swimming and for kids few parks and playgrounds close to beach. This beach is great for smaller kids since there are some pools with not so big waves, but... More

It surrounded by shops and eatery places. There are a lot shades places to spread your picnic rugs and have lunches before play on the sand. The beach... More

We chose an extremely hot day to visit this busy beach, and scrambled over the sand to find a spot to open our umbrella. This is obviously a popular beach for holiday makers as well as locals. Cronulla boasts one of the longest stretches of beach in Sydney. High-rise apartment buildings line the walkway/promenade along the shore and just minutes... More

Beautiful beach - patrolled, protected and lots of different seating/sunbaking areas. There is a kiosk in the clubhouse, and a restaurant overlooking the beach. The water seemed to always be beautiful and crystal clear. If you don't want to go in the surf, there are a choice of 2 ocean pools very close by. There is a protected sitting area... More

We took a train to Cronulla and just walked across from the train station to the beach nearby. It probably took about 10 mins from the station to the beach. The beach is quite beautiful and you find many families lying on the grass or sitting on the benches relaxing. This beach is appealing to families and is a good... More

We took the train from Sydney to Cronulla Beach for the afternoon. We had never been here before and found it somewhat similiar to Manly Beach. It was great to see all the surfers trying to catch a wave or two. We had drinks at Zimzala on the beach!
