The Best Beaches of Australia
It’s no surprise that Australia has few of the world’s most beautiful beaches, given that the whole country is essentially a giant 25,760 km long coastline. Can’t wait to feel the hot sand under your feet and the coastal breeze flowing past your hair, right? But hold up, because only serious travelers planning their trip to Australia would ask the next big question – which beaches should I explore?
Well, with the amount of options that Australia will present you, it’s no easy task to boil it down to the top ten, but here’s our top four Best Beaches of Australia.
1. BONDI BEACH, NSW
Australia’s, and by extension the world’s, beach culture quite literally begins at Bondi Beach. It was here that the very first Surf Life Saving Club was founded, and it was here, in 1900’s, where the bikini was introduced to popular culture.
Bondi Beach is open for the locals and tourists all year long, and it makes complete sense considering its proximity to the city and trendy café precincts, not to mention the sheer beauty of the beach itself. Bondi Beach is a must for tourists visiting Australia for the first time.
2. LIZARD ISLAND, QLD
Lizard Island in the Great Barrier Reef is the picture perfect example of a breathtaking island getaway. Slightly on the more expensive side, it makes up for it with its 23 pristine white beaches on the remote island. You can get your own private villa on this island and live life off the grid, snorkeling or diving, or just enjoying a lazy evening near the ocean.
3. BYRON BAY, NSW
Over the past 20 years, Byron Bay has come a long way, transforming from a small town full of hippie cottages into a modern leisure spot, complete with amazing resorts, cafes and boutiques. One thing has remained unchanged though, and that is the quality of breathtaking beaches that are highly adored by all those who have visited them. And if you are into surfing, boy is it the spot for you. It is less crowded than the other beaches on this list and the lovely long stretch of coastline are conducive to some pumping ocean breaks drawing surfers from all over the globe.
4. MANDALAY BEACH, WA
Don’t make the mistake of overlooking western Australia in favor of the East Coast, because if you make the hike, you will be rewarded with spectacular white beaches, its beauty untouched over the years, with rocky headlands and untamed wilderness, making Mandalay Beach unlike any other mentioned in this list. Catham Island is almost a throw of a stone away from the shores of Mandalay Beach, making for quite a view for your afternoon swim. Do take the chance to visit Mandalay Beach, if you want to experience the true beauty of one of the Best Beaches of Australia.
