Nice beaches close to Sydney airport

Hi Folks,

I have roughly a 6 hour stop over at Sydney airport before my connecting domestic flight, and was wondering where i could take someone who's never been to Sydney before, to see and swim at one of our great beaches. Apart from being relatively close to the airport, I'm not really looking for any other specifics, just personal opinions on which beaches have that little extra something special. Perhaps exclude the obvious iconic Bondi beach. Cheers

The closest beach (excluding Brighton Le Sands on Botany Bay) would be Maroubra - a 15min drive from the International Terminal

And Maroubra isn't all that much closer than Coogee, Bronte and the obvious iconic Bondi.

And another vote against Kyeemagh and Brighton on the bay. They're not beaches at all.
