Surfers like it because the long stretch of sand that make up the Cronulla Beaches give ample room for surfing, as well as every surf related sport including bodysurfing (bodybashing) and boogie boards. Others go for the sun and fun, remembering of course to bring their sun protection lotion and their sunglasses (sunnies).
The Royal National Park located on the coast is a short ferry ride away from Cronulla and is actually the second oldest national park in existence, being declared in 1879. Yellowstone National Park in the United States was the first, having been established in 1872.
There are cruises available that take in the natural beauty of the Royal National Park and the water surrounds - see Aboriginal Heritage Cruises Cronulla.
