Famous for its breathtaking beaches and vibrant surf culture, Cronulla is one of Australia’s most iconic coastal destinations. Cultivating an unrivalled sense of wellbeing, the local lifestyle is all about spending time outdoors – whether you’re cycling along The Esplanade, navigating the rock pools or soothing the soul with a dip in the sea. Where opportunities for discovery are around every corner, this oceanside oasis is second to none.
A few steps from your doorstep, South Cronulla Beach is a picturesque inlet beloved for its clear blue waters and impressive surf break. Spend your days lounging about on its gold-crusted sand or take a leisurely stroll along The Esplanade, where scenic ocean views meet a host of vibrant beachfront attractions.
Just a stone’s throw south of Palm, Shelly Park is one of Cronulla’s best picnic destinations, a grassy retreat shrouded by Norfolk Island Palms. The park leads to a tiny beach surrounded by biodiverse rock pools and peaceful waters, with the iconic Shelly Beach Ocean Pools just a little further down the coast.
Where still blue waters meet a host of waterfront amenities, Gunnamatta Bay is an oasis for community recreation. Here, try your hand at stand-up paddle boarding, enjoy a relaxing swim in the baths or make your way over to Cronulla Wharf, where an hourly ferry service transports you across to beautiful Bundeena Beach.
Beyond the sand, Cronulla continues to impress with its world-class hospitality scene. From buzzing cafes serving artisanal coffee to beachfront restaurants offering freshly-caught seafood, this foodie paradise has something for everyone up its sleeve. Enjoy a post-surf smoothie bowl like a true Cronulla local or watch the sun set over the ocean with a zesty cocktail in hand – at Palm, it’s all on your doorstep.
When it comes to shopping, Cronulla is one of Sydney’s best-kept secrets. The suburb’s main artery, Cronulla Plaza is a lively village hub replete with boutiques, greengrocers and supermarkets – meaning you never have to travel far for whatever it is you need. This plentiful beachside locale offers a multitude of entertainment hotspots and conveniences, leaving no amenity overlooked.
