Bondi Beach, Sydney

4.2
#2 of 24 in Beaches in Sydney
Part of the Australian National Heritage List and one of the world's iconic stretches of sand, Bondi Beach is a must-see while in Sydney. About 1 km (0.6 mi) long and as wide as a football field is long, the golden sand and green parkland behind it provide ideal lounging space. If you plan to swim, head to the northern end; a rip-current on the southern end makes swimming hazardous but provides excellent surfing waves. If you visit during the summer, you might see whales and dolphins migrating from Antarctica to Australia's warm waters.

  • Beautiful, would be the perfect word for the beach to describe it in one word!! We have great food joints close to the beach. Also, parks close to the beach are really good. This place would make a perfect single day outing for a family!
  • Lovely clean, sandy beach, not too crowded at this time of year. Plenty of good facilities including fresh water showers. Near to a large selection of shops and restaurants. As public beaches go, this is a good one. Must go and experience yourself if happened in Sydney.
  • Caught the local bus from Circular Quay to Bondi. Took about 30 mins from downtown Sydney. Bus stop just across the road from the beach. Awesome surf waves and lovely views. Adults and children love this beach. It is near shops and restaurants. Every visitor should go see this iconic beach.
  • A marvellous beach especially for water sports and particularly surfing. Swimming opportunities are limited on the beach by restricted areas so that surfers and swimmers do not collide. The are under tow currents too. There are cafes on the seafront but most of the shops and cafes are set back from the beach so immediate choice is limited.
  • Bondi Beach is a lovely tourist place and you will get the crowed more in the summers. As good as it looks it also has it's own negatives.
