It's summertime in Australia and people are flocking to beautiful beaches for inexpensive fun and relaxation. Bronte Beach is a short bus ride on the 378 from Sydney's Central Railway Station. The Bronte Beach Surf Club boasts being the first since 1903.
Bronte has an ocean pool on the south side of the beach. There are around 100 ocean pools or baths along the open coast of New South Wales. Waves often break over the side of these tidal swimming pools.
Bronte is a popular surfing beach; keen surfers are on their boards at daybreak.
If getting more exercise is one of your new year's resolutions, join the walkers and joggers on the coastal path. Head north to Bondi Beach or south to Coogee Beach. The coastal views will reset your minds and motivate you to take on the challenges of the new year.
