Time Out says
Splash through the waves and watch surfing pros at this beloved sandy cove
Unlike its salty counterparts in the Eastern Suburbs, Cronulla Beach is happily located just five minute’s walk from the train station. The sand backs onto Cronulla Park, so you don’t feel the concrete encroaching too ominously, yet you still have easy access to CBD cafés and bars for a post-swim refreshment. The strong surfing culture in this southern ’burb means this stretch of water is one of the few in Sydney that’s patrolled year-round, so if you tire of watching the wave-riders catch breaks from the rocky headland, you can brave the water yourself, no matter the weather. The beach is also accessible for people who use wheelchairs.
