Just south of the airport, this favorite with southern Sydneysiders is a casual, scene-free gathering spot for families and nudists alike—a five-minute bushwalk (or, conversely, a more treacherous excursion across the rocks) leads you to a clothing-optional area that’s always packed. Bring your appetite: An ice cream boat docks regularly on summer afternoons. And nearby Bare Island is home to a fort built by British colonists in the late 1800s as a defence against the Russians; walk out there anytime, or go on Sundays for a guided tour.
