We’re famed for our gorgeous beaches, and now the top Australian swimming spot has been named – but not everyone agrees.
Tripadvisor announced the winner of their 2018 Travellers’ Choice award, and one famous Sydney beach has taken out the top gong.
Long time lovers of Manly rejoice, because the iconic northern beaches hotspot has topped the list, with reviewers claiming it’s a ‘must-see’.
Surfers Paradise Beach in Queensland came second, while popular stretch of sand Whitehaven Beach in Queensland took out third.

Sydney-siders wondering where Bondi ranked on the list can rest assured it came in at number five.
However with so many insanely beautiful beaches around Australia, the Twitterverse is butting heads over our best beach.
