Sydney’s Beaches are the envy of the world. There are over 100 beaches lining the harbour and coastline, many of which routinely feature on lists of the world’s best beaches. The beaches make for a great natural stress reliever and offer a wonderful insight into Australian culture. Major beaches are regularly patrolled and visitor safety is a priority. Students often trade a park for a beach and a library desk for a towel while enjoying Sydney’s natural playground. Don't forget sunscreen!
