When you can’t choose between the beach and a swimming pool, these rocky swimming spots have the best of both worlds. Plus, while the City of Sydney's public pools remain closed for the moment, a salty ocean dip might be your only chance at swimming some laps.
Dive in as the sun rises and you’ll have the salty baths to yourself, or wade in at hightide for a thrilling swell as waves crash against the walls.

Here are the best places to go kayaking.
