Best Sydney hotels on the beach

A round-up of hotels, motels and apartments near top Sydney beaches like Bondi, Manly and Coogee.

To most locals, spending time at the beach is as essential to life as breathing. Bondi is arguably the city’s most famous beach, but other beloved strips of coast include Manly and Coogee.

Few hotels actually have their foundations in the sand, as places like Bondi are protected from development as National Heritage Sites.

However, there are accommodation options that come with ocean views and others that allow you to go from bed to beach in just a few minutes. Here’s a round-up of the top choices.
