The Sea Cliff Bridge winds along the coastline south of Sydney and is a landmark of the blue coastline. This overhead sky bridge is built on a steep cliff, winding and winding over the South Pacific, with a total length of 665 meters. The bridge deck is spacious. At first glance, the curved bridge deck rises with the sea cliff, presenting an S-shaped curve. Walking along the bridge deck, with steep cliffs on one side and the vast Pacific Ocean on the other, makes people feel relaxed. Moving on, the blue waters, golden sand beaches, and the surrounding scenery form a beautiful oil painting that will make you fascinated. When we are condescending from the bridge deck, we can watch the spectacular scenes of turbulent water surging and hitting the bridge pile foundation as well as the ebb and flow of tides.
The beach is wide and flat, with fine white sand. It feels very soft when you step on it. It makes people feel the urge to throw off their shoes and walk barefoot on it. Touching the cool water with your hands, looking up at the vast blue Pacific Ocean, listening to the sound of waves hitting the beach, feeling that the ocean is so calm and soft. Going further, the flat sandy beach was replaced by a large exposed reef. The waves hit the reef and made a roar, causing layers of waves. Within a few minutes, another face of the ocean appeared in front of us, it was so unrestrained and rough.
