Sydney boasts some of Australia’s best beaches and scenic outdoor pools. From iconic Bondi to Coogee Beach and laid-back Manly to the sheltered bay at Balmoral, you'll always have somewhere for a quick dip, not to mention fabulous photo ops!

We’ve done the hard work for you and found the five best places to steal a kiss, so you’ll have plenty of treasured memories of your romantic getaway in Sydney.

Need to Know:

DO bring your walking shoes. Sydney's famous Bondi to Coogee coastal trail is a must do. Cool off in one of the striking rock pools or cafes along the way. If you're visiting in October, Sculptures by the Sea is an annual open-air gallery that's bound to impress.

DON’T forget to visit the famous Bondi Icebergs, set along the steep coastal cliffs. Unwind with a cocktail in hand and drink in the dazzling view.

COUPLES WILL LOVE spending a night under the stars on Cockatoo Island and waking up to one of the world's most amazing views! Bring your own tent or book a glamping package.
