Tuga Pastries review image

Tuga Pastries

You’ve seen approximately 89 people’s photos of the Icebergs iconic concrete pool, and while it might be the most famous, it’s not the only one of its kind. About a 15-minute drive away is the coastal eastern suburb of Clovelly where you’ll find a similarly beautiful beach and attached concrete pool area. After a swim, make sure you head up the hill to Tuga, a tiny, counter-only pastry shop. Their Portuguese tarts (pasteles de nata) are some of the best you’ll find, so get a few and one of their incredible almond croissants, then head outside to eat in the sun and leave a trail of flaky pastry in your wake.
