Australia is considered by surfers as paradise on earth and this country is home to the most incredible beaches and majestic waves, and riding them represents the true dream of all fans of this sport. Among the endless beaches of Australia, there are some considered as the arrival point of surfers and considered legendary, such as Bells Beach, but there are beaches suitable for everyone even for beginners!

Cabarita Beach in North South Wales is almost completely surrounded by a nature reserve, a lake and beautiful beaches, Cabarita is a small paradise along the coast just half an hour's drive from Byron Bay in New South Wales. Cabarita Beach, revered by surfers, is associated with the village of Cabarita, a tourist resort renowned for peaceful and relaxing holidays in a place where the scenery changes at every step.
Another popular surfer beach is Manly in North South Wales.
Just a 30-minute ferry ride across the world's most spectacular harbor, Manly Beach is the perfect place to start your northern coast beach experience. Manly Beach is one of Australia's most popular beaches, located in the Sydney coastal area and is easily accessible by ferry from Circular Quay in Sydney Harbor. it is an ideal beach for the whole family and in its most extreme part you will have the opportunity to surf undisturbed and experience the thrill of riding the wave near the Queen promontory. There is a also a very famous surf school on the beach which offers lessons for beginners and the beach offers dozens of outdoor bar and restaurant options.
The third most popular beach for surfers in North South Wales, and therefore around Sydney, is Pambula Beach.
Pambula beach is famous for its colonies of kangaroos which are often spotted on the beach and in the surrounding streets especially at sunrise and sunset. Located at a six-hour drive from Sydney, its irregular waves give the opportunity to practice surfing in a fun and unique way, especially for the most experienced surfers. The long beach of Pambula is ideal for relaxing walks and you can even enter the national parks that surround it up to the mouth of the Pambula river or take a dip in the rock pools if the tide is low. Pambula is also renowned for the production of oysters.
Narrabeen beach is a famous surf beach, which became a National Surfing Reserve in 2009 and has played an important role in the history of Sydney's surfing culture.
The break here is characterized by consistent and quality waves where only the most experienced can ride them. It is located just 25 kilometers from Sydney city center.
The beach is equipped with facilities such as: barbecue, parking, picnic area, picnic tables, playground, public toilets, restaurant, showers, surf club and a spectacular viewing platform.
Last but not least is the most famous beach in Sydney, located about half an hour's drive from the city center, where you can practice surfing at all levels: Bondi Beach.
Bondi is often referred to as ‘where the water breaks on the rock’ and it is considered one of the trendiest destinations in Australia, in this location the body and muscles play an important role, as well as the ability to surf and, if you use the bus to get there, it will not be difficult to encounter young surfers carrying boards and wetsuits on board. Once you reach your destination you will have in front of you an immense beach and the sea teeming with surfers with their muscles on display and many young people with skateboards.

Hello everyone! I’m originally from Italy and I moved to Sydney, Australia, in 2012 after getting a job as a civil engineer. I love walking my dog along the beach, surfing and taking photos. I used to have a travel blog because I’m passionate about traveling and I love writing about it too. Sydney is my home base now and I wish to share how amazing it is to live here. I love to spend time outdoors and I’m always well informed about local events because my girlfriend works in event management.
