If you're early, you may be able to find a parking spot on the road beside the beach. But the beautiful views along the lengthy walk from Bondi via the cliff trail is reason enough to park at Bondi and walk to Tamarama. I live...More

This property is well located overlooking Mckenzie bay with a side view of Tamarama beach and rocks. The property is a bit dated, but hey... The view is stunning. On site parking is difficult, already got a fine.

Love this beach but parking can be a nightmare wnd there is often a strong rip which gets poor swimmers and tourists into trouble.

Tamarama beach was showcasing sculptures by the sea when we visited. Clean and great for families of all ages. We loved it!

I love this beach. It is quiet small but very lively. Many surfers. High waves, very nice for waterfun. Don't need to go to a waterpark, just go here! I think for families with little children other beaches are safer.

Walked here enjoying the sculptures, there are a lot on Tamarama Beach, and there are water stations and a cafe there also so good for a break before walking back or catching the bus back to Bondi.

As part of the Sculpture by the Sea walk Tamarama was very busy and many were enjoying the water as well as the works of art. People were picnicking, sunbaking, talking - what a sight! Great. 🤗.

A good beach at any time but more interesting with the Sculptures by the Sea which attracted thousands doing the walk from Bondi Beach at the weekend. Hard to drive there with the road restrictions for a "special event" but worth the extra effort.

Small beach very kind for kids and parents. Bbq, play area, great garden. Convenience. Bus stop nearest. Great walk from Bondi Beach or Coogee.

I love to head here for a quiet moment midweek, or a sur if the conditions are good. Gets crowded on the weekend so head down at low tide and get a spot on the rocks to the left of the beach.

This was a nice beach and better than Bondi and lesser known and more pretty. There is a good expanse of sand , some shelter and it sits into the coastline and a park as well.

Love this beach. Such a dramatic part of the coastline. Be careful swimming. The surf here needs to be respected. The view is great, the park has a good vibe. Worth w visit.
