Bronte Beach (NSW 323) lies 200 m south of Tamarama and is a slightly bigger beach at 250 m in length, but with a larger rips. The beach is set in a picturesque valley, occupied by 10 ha Bronte Park. The park and a moderate amount of parking in the old tramway cutting, plus the government bus service make Bronte a popular beach. However this popularity keeps the lifesavers and year round lifeguards busy with an average of 130 rescues a year. The surf club was formed in 1907, though patrols commenced in 1903. The beach is fronted by a surf zone that is usually occupied by 2-3 rips, one at either end against the headlands (Fig. 4.242), and at times a third one in the centre, with a rock pool on the southern head adjacent to the surf club. The southern headland rip is known as the 'Bronte Express' and provides a fast ride out to sea. An additional hazard is the rocks off the southern end of the beach, an area favoured by board riders.
