Enjoyed the ferries and water taxi, especially the visit to Biekenhead Point. Recommend this activity to all visitors:)

I can't get enough of the breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour bridge and the strategically located Opera House which creates a beautiful view. The ferry ride was equally pleasant as well and definitely a must visit when in Sydney.

There's a nudist beach at Watsons Bay, next to Sydney Heads. Not sure how legal it is, but it's been there for years.
