The beach is beautiful, never too crowded. Plenty of local cafes. The walk from Lurline Bay down through North then South Maroubra is worth travelling to alone. One of Sydney’s best beaches, if not the best.

One of the best spots for photography in Sydney. It has everything - beach, rocks, cliffs, pools, waves. Anything you will ever need to shoot a beautiful sunrise. I go to this spot quite often and manage to create different shots every time.

Maroubra beach is a beautiful long beach that is surrounded by nature. Offering an amazing board walk, perfect waves and shops/cafes adjacent to the water. Highly recommend going for a solo day or a family/friend day out. It's far less crowded than Bondi
