Did you know that Maroubra is home to one of the best surfing beaches in Australia? Not only is Maroubra a great place to surf, but there are also an abundance of parks, cafes, and other fun activities to explore. The beauty about living at Be.Accommodation, is that all these wonderful experiences are right at your doorstep.
So, without further ado, here is a list of things to discover when getting out and about in Maroubra:
Visit Maroubra Beach
If you love beautiful blue ocean, scenic views, relaxing by the water, or catching some waves, Maroubra beach is a must visit for you. The beach is popular with surfers given the regular swell and wave conditions. There is so much to do at the beach, including a free outdoor gym and a skate park. You can also gather a group of friends and utilise their free barbeques located in the central part of the beach and towards the south of the beach near South Maroubra Surf Club. If you get peckish, there is also a café area at the centre of the beach, and more restaurants and cafes located on Marine Parade directly opposite the beach.
Swim in Mahon Rock Pool
Located to the north of Maroubra Beach, Mahon Pool is a great place to cool down in the summer. The view is incredible, and it is the perfect place for sun-lovers to lounge about on the natural sandstone platform that surround the pool. Some people even take their laptops there as they soak up the sun – making it the perfect place to relax and study at the same time.
Eat and Drink
Some of the best restaurants, bars and cafes are located in the heart of Maroubra. Check out the Bay Hotel and Diner across from the beach, the pub provides a delectable selection of meals that everyone can enjoy! There is also the Pavilion Beachfront, which is a gorgeous waterside breakfast and lunch spot on the beach promenade which also offers breathtaking ocean views.
Walk Along the Walking Track
Maroubra is a coastal suburb, meaning there are many great walks to do along the water. If you love nature, take a stroll along the nearby Western Escarpment walking track. It boasts an abundance of bird life, wildflowers, and of course stunning coastal views. You may even spot migrating Humpback Whales or Seals during the winter months! The Maroubra to Coogee walk is also a lovely track, with rugged cliff tops, sea views, and various ocean baths making it a very picturesque walk.
Paint and Sip!
If you are looking for a fun activity to do with your friends, visit Pinot and Picasso, dubbed Australia’s number one Paint and Sip experience. Enjoy a night of BYO wine and painting as an expert host provides you with step-by-step instructions on the artwork which you will be painting. This is a super fun experience allowing your creative juices to run wild.
