Palm Beach: Escape the bustle


The beach here is one of Sydney's largest and is far less busy than Bondi Beach.

"The best part about Palm Beach is the sparkling beaches, hiking and watersport options as well as the effortless local lifestyle," says Scott Ricketts, tour guide and founder of Your Sydney Guide. "It's surrounded by water, with a great lunch option at waterfront restaurant Boathouse and a famous walk up to Barrenjoey Lighthouse."

If you'd rather not drive the hour, the L90 bus will take you from Sydney CBD to Palm Beach but that route can take up to two hours.
