Cronulla is a beach-side suburb in southern Sydney, at about 26 km/16 mi in the south of Sydney's CBD (Central Business District). Cronulla lies on a peninsula, between Botany Bay on the north and Port Hacking on the south. It is a popular tourist location and attracts many beach enthusiasts.

The beach features a long stretch of sand, extending from Boat Harbor to North Cronulla. Shark Island is a popular location for spearfishing. To reach Shark Island, you can paddle from Cronulla Point across a flat channel. It is an exposed reef break with some good entry and exit points, depending on the tides.

Water temperature is up to 21°C/69.8°F in summer and early autumn months and between 14-18°C/57.2-64.4°F in winter. Visibility is generally medium and depends on the current weather conditions. You are able to see an abundant marine life including bream, red morwong, old wives, kingfish and leatherjacket to name just a few.

Keep in mind that the ideal wetsuits for winter are 5mm and 3.5mm for summer. It is advisable to bring with you a flag, in order to avoid a boat accident. Apart from diving, there is a variety of activities, attractions, restaurants and bars that lie on the streets around Cronulla beach.
