Sydney, Australia – Great beach spots for the whole family

avatar

Summer in Sydney means heading to the beach, but often when you have a family it can sometimes be less of a relaxing snooze on the sand and more a stressful venture to the coastline.

While the beach is great it can sometimes be difficult taking the whole family along to places like Bondi Beach, where there are so many people everywhere that it’s easy for a parent’s worst nightmare to come to fruition and loose your little ones among the crowd or the waves are too big to be a safe place to take the kids into the water.
