SYDNEY’S BEST BEACHSIDE BARS
There is no better place in the world than Sydney on a sunny day and there’s no better place to enjoy it than at one of Sydney’s Best Beachside bars.
Sydney is known for its spectacular scenery including our endless beaches. Our guide to Sydney’s best beachside bars gives you some great spots to grab a drink and soak up the amazing beachside views. What else could you ask for?!
Sydney’s Bondi Beach is not only one of Sydney’s most iconic and popular beaches but it’s also home to many great restaurants, bars, cafes and shops. If you’re looking for a beach area which has something for everyone then Bondi is a prime choice. The Bucket List is as close as you can get to the beach without tripping on one of the oiled up bathers and the perfect spot post a day of swimming. Relax with a cocktail jug and listen to the funky tunes as you watch the sunset.
Hugos Manly is one of the most beautiful spot for drinks on a warm Sydney summers day. Hugos Manly is located at Manly Wharf and like Bondi, Manly boasts a huge number of shops, cafes and restaurants. Getting to and from Hugos is easy if you are coming from the city. Just get the Queenscliff ferry which conveniently pulls up right in front of Hugos.
Located right next to Hugo’s Manly, Manly Wharf is a more relaxed indoor and outdoor bar with loads of space. Manly Wharf Hotel is a great spot if you’re looking for a more relaxed vibe whereas Hugos is a small bar and most people visit for the great dinner menu. I recommend Manly Wharf Hotel if you are just looking to grab a drink and admire the view and Hugos if you are looking to grab a bite after your cocktail.
Located at Coogee Beach the Pavilion features spectacular beachside views and a multilevel complex. If you’re after a bite to eat then downstairs is a large restaurant with a great menu and child-friendly areas. At the roof level is the Bar which overflows with beach goers on a warm day.
Watson’s Bay Hotel is a great place if you are looking for a casual bite to eat or a drink outside at the Beach Club. The Beach Club has become extremely popular among the local’s and on a nice day it’s wall to wall full of Sydney siders celebrating birthdays, parties or just life in general 🙂 The great thing about the Watsons Bay Hotel is it’s more than just a bar so if you’re looking for a meal then this is a great choice.
The Island is an exclusive outdoor floating bar in Sydney Harbour. The venue has unrivalled views to any other water location and I’d highly recommend if it’s a clear day. The island is highly weather dependent because you have to get a water taxi or courtesy boat to the venue. To buy tickets to one of their events visit The Island website: http://theislandsydney.com.au/
Cockatoo Island is a heritage listed island in the middle of Sydney harbor that you can get to by ferry. Two notable things to do on the island is of course the Societe Overboard bar which overlooks Sydney Harbour and the other is its glamping facilities.
Depending on where in Sydney you are staying you’ll need to find your way to these venues which could be a little expensive depending on the time of day and traffic. Some useful resources to help plan your journey are Uber and Sydney transport which provide ferries, trains & buses
