Bondi Beach, Sydney, Australia, on a fine winter morning with good surf, two surfers just walking out into the waves.

Winter is lovely. Marshmallows and hot chocolate. Netflix and snuggles. Furs and fires. Coats -- oh, the coats.

But summer is coming, and summer wins.

Aside from the inevitable post-winter leg shaving fiasco that will have lazy girls everywhere (or is it just me?) crying out #effyourbeautystandards, summer is just one big sandy, sweaty, salty, ice-cream-y ball of bliss.

Because looking at photos of beaches and bikinis is everyone’s idea of fun, we’ve rounded up the best pics of our beautiful country this week. Thanks Insty.

Ahhh @rottnestislandwa... your sunny weather, picturesque scenery and beautiful beaches make you very hard to resist! This idyllic island that lies just 19km off the coast of #Perth in @westernaustralia is actually home to a total of 63 beaches and 20 bays, so you're more than spoilt for choice when choosing a swimming spot here.
