Little Congwong Beach – Unofficial

Little CongwongMake your way to La Perouse on Botany Bay and park in the car park just north of Bare Island. Walk down the steps to Congwong Beach then left across the rocks to Little Congwong Beach, the second bay. This beach is very popular on summer weekends.

Jibbon Beach – Unofficial

Head south from Sydney along the Princes Highway for about 29 km then turn left to Audley and the Royal National Park. 1.5 km later you will have to pay a day fee, or you can take out an annual permit which gives you access to all New South Wales National Parks except Kosciusko. Information is available from the Visitors Centre.

Continue on past Audley following the signs to Bundeena. About 10 km after turning left into Bundeena Road you reach the town. Follow the main road to the wharf and turn right into Loftus Street. Parking is available here or in Neil Street, but beware of the No Parking zones. A short walk will take you through to the beach then walk east for about 200 metres. At weekends and during holidays you may find the main Jibbon Beach crowded with people and boats. At these times naturists tend to go to nearby Little Jibbon Beach or Ocean Beach.

Little Jibbon Beach – Unofficial

Little Jibbon Beach can be reached by taking the footpath from the eastern end of Jibbon Beach. Backed by low cliffs it has enough sand for sunbathing, although swimming is mainly from the rocks or in the many rock pools. There are some Aboriginal rock carvings nearby.

Ocean Beach – Unofficial

Ocean Beach is reached via a fire trail starting some 70 metres before the end of Jibbon Beach. It leads directly east to the ocean and this small sandy beach, which is fronted by rocks at low tide. Swimming is in the rock pools but care is needed in strong southerly swells. All these beaches officially close at sunset. An alternative means of getting to Jibbon Beach is to catch the ferry from Cronulla Wharf and then walk 400 metres to the beach.

There are several other beaches in this National Park that are suitable for nude bathing, such as Marley Beach and Curracurrang. The main draw back with these is the long walk to get to them.[/tab]
