Could this be Australia’s best secret beach?


Australia has plenty of beaches, but Kutti Beach probably has to be our favourite.

We're going to go ahead and call it - Kutti Beach in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs could potentially be one of the country's best-kept beach secrets. For starters, it's only accessible via a very narrow, white-painted wood stairwell. Secondly, it's in a completely residential area so unless you knew were you going, you would never just stumble upon it. Sah, sah secret.


The harbour beach (read: calm waters) is located in Sydney's Vaucluse suburb, and is home to the area's most historic sailing clubs, the Vaucluse Amateur 12 Foot Skiff Club. Kutti is one of Sydney's few dog beaches, meaning there's a strong chance you'll see a puppy when you visit and oh my god, are we just describing paradise to you?

So how do you get there? Well, now that you know where it is, it's not actually that tricky to find. iPhone maps pick it up, so it should be easy to find if you're tracking the white dot's location as you walk down Wharf Road, off Hopetoun Avenue. And if you feel like you're just beginning to get lost because all you can see around you are luxury homes and quiet streets, you're going the right way. Once you find that hidden white staircase and white picket fence, you're set.
