Tamarama Beach – Australia
Sydney is known the world over for its stunning, city side beaches and Tamarama Beach is certainly no exception. Tamarama Beach is small, but has a huge reputation as being a place where the beautiful people hang out. So much so, that it’s known locally as Glamarama Beach and has been since the (arguably not very glamorous) 1980s. But don’t let the prospect of beautiful people put you off. Let the danger of rip tides and huge, crashing waves put you off!
Situated between Bondi Beach and Bronte Beach, Tamarama/Glamarama Beach is actually a tiny cove. In fact, it only has 80 metres of coastline. But that doesn’t make it any less deadly. Renowned for its glamour, it’s also renowned for being one of the deadliest beaches in Sydney. The beach here is very narrow, and the might of the regular riptides will scoop up whatever they like, drag it all out to sea and throw it against the rocks. For this reason, swimming and paddling on Tamarama Beach is often prohibited.
Surfing usually falls under the no-go rules too, but that doesn’t stop adventurous thrill seekers from venturing out on their surfboards. Since Sydney has so many stunning beaches, if a dangerous (but we’re sure, thrilling) surf isn’t your thing, maybe stick to another, safer beach!
