A secluded and scenic bay in south-eastern Sydney, Little Bay is as charming a suburb as its namesake. Surrounded by rocky cliffs, greenery and an air of solitude, Little Bay is a desirable Eastern Suburbs location.
Lying between Malabar and La Perouse on the northern headland of Botany Bay, Little Bay is just 16 kilometres south of Sydney’s CBD. Originally used as a sanitation site during the smallpox outbreak in the early 1800s, the Little Bay of today is an attractive coastal suburb with a striking landscape and plenty of luxurious waterfront homes. While not as bustling as nearby Maroubra and Botany Bay, an increase in housing developments over the years has boosted the suburb’s popularity and attracted plenty of residents.
Along with a convenient location and stunning landscape, Little Bay’s most attractive feature is Little Bay Beach. A relatively ‘secret’ beach, with its curved shape and rocky boundary protecting it from dangerous swells, ensuring calm waves for families and young children. While the beach is not patrolled, it is still a popular summer escape for locals and visitors.
Little Bay’s charming name, breathtaking beach, and convenient location is a winning combination for a highly sought-after Eastern Suburbs hotspot.
