Sydney Beaches
Sydney weather is almost always perfect to hit the beach, and Sydney has plenty of them to choose from. Tamarama beach has some excellent swells if you're looking to surf.

If you're looking for romance, take the coastal walk from Bondi beach to Coogee. The cliff top paths will give you awesome ocean views, and there are quaint places to stop for a snack or drink.
