Sun-drenched days in Balmoral Beach

In Balmoral Beach, sun, sand and seawater are all top priorities. You'll find the best swimming in front of Balmoral Bathers Pavilion, a heritage-listed building raised in the late 1920s. Calm water and a shark-safe swimming enclosure make it a favorite with families. The Esplanade strip hugs the coast and is lined with cafes, juice bars and trendy restaurants. If you want to burn off some energy, the Balmoral Sailing School rents kayaks, sailboards, SUPs and more. For a secluded sunbathing session head to the northern tip of the beach and follow the shoreline to Chinamans Beach.

As well as sweeping views of Sydney Harbour, you'll also stroll past colonial fortifications, sandstone gun trenches and infamous "Tiger Cage" cells, a remnant of the Vietnam War. Keep walking and you'll hit the award-winning Taronga Zoo, home to Sumatran tigers, Asian elephants and California sea lions, not to mention a menagerie of Australian wildlife.

Sultry summers in Balmoral Beach
