We stayed in Bondi but walked over to Bronte Beach and Pool every day. The pool is free and so nice! Less crowded than Bondi which we loved. Highly recommend this beach and pool to anyone staying in the area.

Not a great swimming beach as the Rip is dangerous. It is part of the lovely Bondi to Coogee Coastal walk which is stunning in any weather.

We walked over the cliffs from Bondi and came across Bronte beach. Not as commercial as Bondi, it's a decent size. Pretty.
