    Between South Head and Camp Cove lies a tiny beach with spectacular views. Lady Bay also doubles as one of Sydney's dedicated nude beaches, so if that's how you like to swim, or if you forget your togs, then this is the place for you. After enjoying a refreshing dip, make sure to walk around the South Head Heritage Trail for more breathtaking views of the harbour.

    How to get there: Park the car at Camp Cove carpark and follow the South Head Heritage Trail to the beach.
