Don't let its popularity fool you though — Manly is actually a great spot for experienced surfers looking to take on bigger waves. With its strong rip tides and powerful swells, it offers plenty of challenge even for seasoned riders. And when you've finished riding the waves, you can explore Manly's bustling boardwalk or relax at one of its many restaurants or bars.

Maroubra Beach

Maroubra Beach is another great option for ambitious surfers looking to hone their skills on larger waves. Located just south of Sydney, Maroubra boasts some excellent swells that will test even the most experienced riders. Aside from surfing however, Maroubra also offers plenty of other activities such as swimming and sunbathing — so there's something here for everyone!

From Bondi's gentle swells perfect for beginners to Maroubra's powerful breakers ideal for advanced surfers — there's no shortage of awesome spots to choose from!
