Time Out says
Swim, fish and laze on the sand in this relaxed southern coastal strip
The South Sydney stretch of sand is an ideal spot for a gentle splash in calm waters. The section of the beach which meets the mouth of the Cooks River is also a splendid fishing spot. Beyond the water, find public volley ball nets, parks, and barbecue and picnic areas, plus the breezy Promenade which leads to tops brekky and lunch options at the kiosk.
