Watsons Bay is such a lovely place I can recommend for anyone visiting Sydney. It is just a short ferry ride from Circular Quay. There's a smallish harbourside beach. Great views to the open ocean can be seen after a short walk across The Gap. Slightly longer walk takes you to the Hornby Lighthouse with views to the strait that leads to Sydney Harbour. Along that path there's also another beach, Camp Cove. Watsons Bay also has a nice selection of restaurants including famous Doyles on the Beach on the right side of the picture.

Hello Kari ,
It seems to be a very pleasanr beach , with some buildings , but also interesting restaurants , greenery , and fine white sand .
A good idea to travel in Australia in January , so far from the long and cold finnish winter.

un bon point de vue, montrant agréablement la courbe formée par la plage.
C'est bien vu, avec de belles couleurs.

Lovely beach scene, Kari, though there's frigheningy little beach here - so narrow! Hopefully this is high tide. There's so much to look at here, from the waders to the boat to the buildings just off the walkway. So much life in this little spot! Thanks, and congratulations on a creative title as well!

Hello Kari, This beach looks very nice indeed. It is rather narrow, but at least safe. Other beaches I saw some wide and beautiful beaches but with crocodiles and box jelly fishes. Nice summer photo.

Dobar tekst o zalivu sa opisom, lep pogled ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak, lepe boje.
Dobra kompozicija, lepo uhvacen trenutak, lepa plaza sa peskom.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje.

My brother in law used to live 2 blocks back from here in Vaucluse so I know this area well. Parsley Bay nearby is also nice. The sweeping curve of the shoreline adds deep perspective and Doyle's Fish & Chips used to be an iconic restaurant although I know there are better cheaper and less tourist-ed restaurants around town. The harbor looks lovely and the gull fills a blank spot in the sky. Tfs!
