after doing the Hermitage Walk which is my number 1 favourite walk in sydney, i finished up at Watson's Bay where i took a ferry back to circular quay. the bay has one of the nicest water views in sydney and very accessible by ferries.

The place offers beautiful view of the city. One can also enjoy the endless ocean, with the sound of waves splashing the cliffs. Not very crowded on weekdays, this is a good place to walk by and enjoy the views.
