Delicious Hampers To Enjoy At Sydney Beaches
We’re super lucky in Sydney to have the choice of so many incredible beaches to visit. All along the coast there are loads of hidden gems when it comes to places by the ocean where you can relax, get some sun and enjoy a beautiful swim. Make a day of it with your friends, family or partner, and visit some of these cool Sydney beaches for your next outing! To make your day even better, take along one of Pretty Green’s hampers - they’re all jam packed with goodies that’ll be perfect for your day at the beach.
Beautiful Beach Up Very North
Avalon Beach is a lovely spot to set up for the day. Situated about a 45 minute drive north of Sydney’s CBD - it’s got everything you want and more. The beach is patrolled at the southern end, and has a pretty well-known swell up the northern end if you’re a keen surfer. It’s unique golden sand against the bright blue water will be the perfect backdrop to your picnic set up! Pretty Green’s ‘Picnic Daze’ hamper would suit this Sydney beach perfectly. How about a cold, refreshing glass of ‘Sparkling Elderflower’ drink by Ashbolt - which can of course be placed nicely in the Winestain’s ‘Travel Picnic Stake For Two’. Kookas Natural ‘Raw Macadamia Cookies’ and Wondaree ‘Roasted Macadamias’ are the ultimate goodies to snack on all day as you keep on jumping in and out of the water. Sounds like the ideal set up to us.
East Sydney’s Best Kept Secret
Gordon’s Bay has got to be up there with one of Sydney’s most stunning secret beach locations. You can only access the bay by foot. It’s a picturesque swimming hole surrounded by large rocks, where you can set up for the day. Bring along your snorkels and goggles and spend the day swimming amongst the fishes and everything else you happen to see in the crystal clear water. The water is calm because the location is protected - bonus! Our ‘It’s Summer Lime’ hamper would be a great choice for your day at Gordon’s Bay. Sobah’s ‘Lemon Aspen Pilsner’ and ‘Finger Lime Cerveza’ are refreshing, alcoholic-free beers that definitely won’t disrupt your snorkeling. Pair that with some delicious Django’s ‘6 Piece Mixed Chocolate Macadamias’ for a little sweet treat as you enjoy your day!
Hidden Gem In Sydney’s South
Garie Beach, located in the Royal National Park in the Sutherland Shire, is the perfect option if you want to get away from the crowds of the city. Make sure you arrive early to get a car park, as it is a keen spot for surfers! At this beautiful long, white-sanded beach it feels like you’re in another world as it’s also surrounded by the bush. It’s patrolled so you won’t have to worry about feeling unsafe. It’s best you stay there for the day, so you’ll definitely need a jam packed hamper to keep you going! Pretty Green’s ‘Thank Fizz It’s Summer’ would be ideal. Dirt Candy’s ‘The Fizz’ Sparkling Semillon is a fruity, fizzy wine that would be lovely on a hot, summer’s day. We’ve also chucked in Port Willunga Fine Foods’ ‘Fleurieu Kalamata Olives’ that would pair nicely with your glass of bubbles. For later, a bit of a sweet treat, Hey Tiger 'Best Mates' Coconut and Caramelised Popcorn Chocolate is truly delicious. You won’t regret this choice!
Secluded Beach In The Middle Of The City
If you don’t want to travel too far from the city but are still keen on a tranquil day by the water, then Redleaf Beach, also known as Murray Rose Beach, is the spot for you. It’s an ocean pool located in Sydney’s harbour, in Double Bay, and is far less crowded than some of the city’s more well-known beaches. It’s an enclosed swimming area, so it’s safe for a swim! It also has a wrap-around pontoon, where you can set up your towel or chair and devour some yummy snacks. Our ‘Summer In The City’ suits the location completely - c’mon, it’s in the name. Bar Rochford ‘Hanky Panky Cocktail’ is a cheeky, delicious drink to enjoy while watching the sunset after a lovely day. Pair that with some of Django Macadamias Mekong Macadamias to munch on all day.
Keen to get to one of Sydney’s beautiful beaches before the summer is over? Then you better get a move on! Choose one of these locations, or another if you prefer, and set up with one of Pretty Green’s gourmet hampers and enjoy what will definitely be a super chilled afternoon.
