A beautiful summers day is never to be wasted – yesterdays weather true to Sydney’s beautiful sunny form, was no exception! Regardless of the two UNI assignments lingering over my head, I decided yesterday was the perfect opportunity to yet again disown whatever little responsibility and commitment I have and head to the beach!
As we dragged our sun deprived bodies off the lounge the question of WHERE arouse? After minutes of googling and ‘researching’ pretty spots to swim, we stumbled upon Little Bay.
After “umming” and “ahhing” for a good half of the day, we decided Little Bay Beach was the location of choice and it certainly did not disappoint! From the moment we arrived the view of beautiful clear blue water was memorising!
Tucked away at the bottom of Randwick Golf course, Little Bay is hidden away, sheltered from the cruel coastal breeze making it an ideal swimming location. Being so recluse also means it attracts minimal swell – so you don’t have to worry about getting dumped or choppy waves. The flat surf makes it a perfect point of relaxation and the ideal spot for a snorkel (for those feeling more adventurous).
Not to mention, it’s also the prime location for a good old fashioned picnic or even just to laze around and soak up some sun in good company ( or in your own company – your choice). We weren’t feeling quite so ambitious, choosing to laze around and soak up some sunshine instead! As well as the beach, a little further down just across the rocks are two more secluded swimming spots, just as beautiful as the first. All are along the cove and easily accessible.
For such a pretty spot you’d expect it to attract a bigger crowd, but due to it’s location it seems to be a treasure appreciated mostly by the locals. On a whole I’d definitely put it high on the list of places to check out this summer. For those who want to check it out, the offical address we used to get there was 4R Coast Hospital Road, Little Bay NSW 2036, which gets you to a car park above little bay beach. There is a set of stairs close by that trail down to the ocean so you’re virtually right there. It’s one worth shaving your legs for ladies – I rate it a sturdy 4/5
