Sydney’s Top 5 Sexiest, Secluded Beaches
Sun on your face and salt in your hair – let’s face it, summer has to be one of the sexiest times of year. Where better to indulge your senses that at one of Sydney’s sexy secluded beaches? Lucky for you, we’ve got you covered…and in some cases, not ‘covered’ at all.
Escape the chaos of the big beaches and explore some of our secret little hideaways. Whether you’re after a skinny-dip or something a little more relaxed, you’re sure to find it in this list of sexy, secluded beaches.
Who said hotel rooms are the only place to feel sexy? It doesn’t get much hotter than a high-class companion wrapping her arms around your neck as you kiss in the cool, refreshing water out of the prying eyes of tourists. Here are our top 5 spots to visit this summer:
1. Lady Martins Beach, Point Piper
At this little gem, you’re in good company. Sydney’s small harbourside suburb of Point Piper is one of the country’s most exclusive haunts and home to one of the most gorgeous, chilled-out beaches in town. Named after Lady Mary Martin, wife of chief justice and politician Sir James Martin, it’s a tiny treasure flanked by millionaires’ mansions, but the view is free. Rub shoulders with Sydney’s elite…or just on your high-class escort’s shoulders. Entry is via a narrow lane off Wolseley Road that passes by the Royal Prince Edward Yacht Club.
2. Obelisk Beach, Mosman
Has killer views — and not only because it’s one of few legal nudist beaches in Sydney. And we mean nude. Despite its cult status, it’s usually quiet and tranquil and of course, has great views over Sydney Harbour. It’s extremely secluded, as you need to have a certain tenacity to climb down a rocky track and set of steps to gain access, although there’s a large public car park on the Middle Head Roadside of Chowder Bay Road. The climb down adds to the adventure, only it’s best to be dressed for that part. Perfect place to enjoy a skinny-dip in a secret, classy location.
3. Milk Beach, Vaucluse
Located at the base of Hermit Bay within the Sydney Harbour National Park, Milk Beach is ideal for everything from sunbaking to snorkelling or fishing. It’s a small, insulated beach surrounded by the Heritage-listed Strickland House and offers magnificent views of Sydney. Whether it’s a picnic or a walk along the Hermitage Foreshore, Milk Beach is one of Sydney’s best-kept secrets. It can be accessed via public transport or boat, and limited off-street parking is available.
4. Lady Bay, South Head
We have the late Neville Wran to thank for all the naked bodies at this glorious stretch of sand, which is tucked into the harbour just north of Watsons Bay. In 1976, as Premier of New South Wales, he legalised going in the buff here, turning Lady Bay into one of Australia’s first legal naturist beaches. The easiest way to get there is via ferry from Circular Quay to Watsons Bay Wharf, from where it’s an easy one-kilometre walk. Those pesky clothes might well be weighing you down — but do try to keep them on ’til you hit the sand.
5. Bungan Beach, Barrenjoey Peninsula
Bungan is one of Sydney’s most undeveloped beaches and has a wild and unspoiled character. The rugged beauty of the cliffs gives it a private feel and bushwalkers will love the vivid scenery. It’s 600m long, running in a south-east direction between Bungan Headland to the north and Mona Vale Headland to the south. There are reasonable breaks for surfers and it’s a relief from the crowded waves at more popular beaches. Away from the prying tourist eyes of Bondi or Tamarama, but with just as much beauty (if not more). Access by a laneway along Barrenjoey Road — it’s the headland just before the descent to Newport.
