Watson's Bay, Sydney

#1 of 15 in Nature in Sydney
Sitting at the southern head of the massive Sydney Harbour, Watson's Bay offers both a beach-community vibe and outstanding views of the Sydney skyline across the harbor. Relax in the sun on Camp Cove Beach and then choose from one of two coastal walks. The first goes south, providing views of The Gap, a striking ocean cliff. The second goes north, where you can spot the Hornsby Lighthouse. Both routes take about one hour round-trip. Back in Watson's Bay, stop in a restaurant for fresh fish n' chips before heading on to your next destination.

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
