Where are the best non-touristy beaches in Sydney?

I'm looking for the best beaches in Sydney. One that has fewer tourists and more locals where I could run and do some yoga. Any recommendations?

    For a long run I would recommend Curl Curl Beach or Maroubra Beach. They are less touristy or rather, less people, as they take a bit longer to get to. Curl Curl is a pretty long beach with not many people in the middle of it where you can get your yoga on in peace.

    Hey Emily,


    Building on from Maddie's answer - on the northern beaches, just head north from Manly. As you get further up the peninsula the beaches can get quieter, with more locals. I like Whale Beach and Avalon Beach but there are quiet a view to see.

    For harbour beaches, my favourite is Balmoral Beach, and if you're there early in the morning, or late afternoon, it is quieter, with all the locals out doing their thing. A similar beach on the southern side of the harbour is Camp Cove.

    Basically, in Sydney you've got the Northern Beaches, the Eastern and the Southern beaches. You'll find tourists in Manly, in the North, and from Bondi Beach through Coogee in the East, and not many at any of the Southern beaches (e.g. Cronulla). Any of the beaches South of Coogee will have less tourists. Any of the beaches North of Manly will have less tourists. They're all nice, it just depends on where you're staying or how you get around. If you're looking to run the length of a long, tourist free beach, Dee Why or Collaroy are good bets.

    Those are all ocean beaches - there are also many beautiful and much more quiet beaches harbourside in both the Eastern Suburbs and the Northern Beaches. Around Clontarf, for example, there are a number of quiet, lovely beaches to run and do whatever you want.

    If you have time head south to Cronulla or if you have a car drive through the Royal National Park to Jibbon Beach near Bundeena. Stunning drive but a good hour to hour and a half south of Sydney - the beach is spectacular and usually empty weekdays.

    Close to Manly is Freshwater Beach and Curl Curl Beach, but my personal favourite is Mona Vale Beach. It's a little further north (~15min drive from Manly) and there are a few smaller beaches around it too, like Warriewood Beach.


    Enjoy the locals' beaches!
