Brazil is known worldwide for its blessed coastline and full of unforgettable landscapes. However, some other countries are also successful because of their privileged coastline with incredible views. Because of this, we need to talk about the best beaches in Australia.
In addition to being one of the most recommended countries for international students, whether for its globalized culture, the great education opportunities or even the friendly and hospitable people, Australia is home to true natural paradises that deserve to be visited and enjoyed.
With that in mind, we have prepared a list of some of the best beaches in this country. Thus, you can include them in your tour itinerary and visit them during your study abroad. Good reading!
- Bondi Beach (Sydney)
It is impossible to make a list of the best beaches in Australia and leave the famous Bondi Beach, in Sydney, out of this selection. This beach is an unmissable attraction for natives and tourists looking for a quality tour and easy access to many other regions.
Icon of Australian culture, Bondi Beach is one of the beaches most frequented by surfers. It is even part of the history of this sport, since it was in its sea that many safety guidelines were defined for athletes who practice it.
Being close to many other important attractions in the city and being a kind of cultural heritage of Sydney, this beach is the darling of Brazilians and is always full of people. So be prepared to meet different people and socialize during your tour!
- Bells Beach (Victoria)
A little south of Melbourne, you can find a true paradise for surfers: Bells Beach. With incredible waves for the practice of this sport, this location is a great option for those who like to practice extreme sports and get in touch with a wilder version of nature.
However, this beach is not an interesting alternative just for surfers. Those who like to enjoy beautiful landscapes and take unique photos will also like to stop by, as there are a series of cliffs and safe places for observation from higher points.
So, if your vibe is adventure and direct contact with nature, Bells Beach is a good option for a tour to discover during your study abroad. Another positive point is the proximity to important places, which means that a stop by here is not so “out of the way”.
- Cossie’s Beach (Coco’s Keeling Island)
Imagine the perfect beach. Thought? Most likely, your imagination created an image very close to what would be Cossie’s Beach, considered by many to be one of the most perfect beaches on the planet.
The Coco Islands (also called Keeling Islands) are a group of islets located in the middle of the Indian Ocean, a good distance from Perth and the Australian mainland and closer to countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia. Access, therefore, is by plane or boat.
Visiting these virtually unexplored islands is a great experience. Here, it is possible to see nature in its most stunning form and perform unforgettable activities, such as diving, hiking and others.
- Whitehaven Beach (Whitsunday Island)
Whitehaven Beach is located on a small island in the northeastern part of Australia, close to the city of Cairns and also the iconic Great Barrier Reef, one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World.
With that, it’s easy to see that this is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, isn’t it? With its vivid turquoise water and extremely white sands (which are made up of silica, a very pure form of sand that doesn’t get very hot underfoot), the setting looks like something out of a painting.
Due to its large extension, the beach is rarely extremely crowded. Because of this, it is a good option for those who want to see one of the most unbelievable landscapes on the planet without having to share the space with several people.
- Cable Beach (Broome)
Located in Broome (which is in the west of the country, about 2000 km north of Perth) and famous for its soft and beautiful sand, Cable Beach is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Australia.
Despite having gained some notoriety in recent years, this beach could not be more different from popular spots such as Bondi Beach. It is still quite reclusive and practically untouched by human beings, which makes this piece of land and sea a great place for those who like quiet walks.
Another interesting point that makes it different from other beaches on our list is the fact that it is bathed by the Indian Ocean. This makes the visual spectacles observed here quite different, bringing a completely new perspective to visitors.
- Four Mile Beach (Port Douglas)
To finish our list, we could not fail to mention Four Mile Beach, located in Port Douglas, an area very close to Cairns. This is, therefore, its first advantage: the proximity to a city with good opportunities for stay and leisure.
The natural beauties of the northeast region of Australia are known around the world and with Four Mile Beach, this is no different. Here, it is possible to observe some unique features, such as the presence of a mangrove, the mountains covered by vegetation, the coral barrier and other interesting features.
In addition, there are observation points (special for observing the stunning nature and taking good photos) and options for activities such as fishing, diving and many others.
Did you enjoy discovering some of the best beaches in Australia? Of course, there are still many other must-see locations to visit, but this selection cites some that really cannot be left out of your travel planning! We hope you have a lot of fun on your tours and that you enjoy it a lot!
