Take the ferry over and drop into Doyles for a coffee and a pastry. Super friendly. Walk along the beach and walk to the cove to the left of the ferry. Beautiful area and views on the way.

Wow, What an amazing view! Fab visit just for the beach/boat view. Nice little bay but avoid Doyle’s on the beach as pretentious.

A quick walk from the ferry terminal you can get a great view of the coastline that forms the South Head. Well worth the walk up the hill.

Watson's Bay has plenty of waterside restaurants and bars to hang out at and enjoy the views. Grab a bite and a few drinks before walking along the beach or through the nearby park.

Not just for the best fish and chips in Sydney, but also the stunning walk through gap park and the views of the Pacific Ocean, very dramatic which reminded me of Cornwall, but in the sunshine.
