Next door neighbour to Sydney's most famous beach, Bondi, is the dimunitve Tamarama beach. This little beach is possibly deeper than it is wide, although at only about 80 metres that isn't too dificult.

Often referred to as 'Glamarama' the beach here is where the beautiful people come to top up their tans. The nickname however dates back to the 1980s when Tamarama was known as the gayest beach in Sydney. Things have moved on since then and these days the place to hang out is apparently North Bondi leaving Tama to the body beautifuls.

Although a little on the cosy side the cove here really is quite pleasant spot. Behind the beach is a large area of parkland with a cafe, playground, barbecue area and various other amenities.

Poseur's paradise as it might be Tamarama also has the reputation as being the most dangerous patrolled beach in New South Wales. Often closed to swimmers strong rip currents here mean it is sensible to take the lifeguard's advice.
