Bondi Beach

Bondi Beach



Just 5 miles (8 kilometers) from the city center, Bondi Beach is a Sydney landmark and one of the world’s greatest beaches. Blessed with powdery sand and warm turquoise waters, Bondi is an alluring place to pass the day away sunbathing and people-watching. It’s also a great place to catch some waves during a surfing lesson. After soaking up some sun and relaxing on the sand, stretch your legs by embarking on a coastal walk from Bondi Beach to Bronte or Coogee.

In Sydney, you cannot miss out on the coastal path from Bondi Beach to Coogee. After seeing the iconic Bondi Icebergs Pool, which melts into the ocean at the start of the path, you will discover beaches like Tamarama and Bronte Beach and natural pools such as Giles Bath. Without a doubt, the path from Bondi Beach to Coogee is one of the best trails in Sydney in the Australian state of New South Wales. Moreover, the area turns into an outdoor museum during the “Sculpture by the Sea” festival.

Sunrise at Bondi is magical. If it’s a fresh morning, pack a blanket, grab a patch of grass on the hill and sip a mug of hot chocolate as you watch the beach come to life. To warm up afterwards, head to the Bondi branch of Sydney institution Bills for a plate of the best eggs in the world.
Unmissable Things to Do in Sydney

Okay, we’d be remiss to leave Australia’s most famous beach off the list. Though the beach is often bursting at the seams with tourists, (you can’t walk 10ft without tripping over a backpacker), Bondi is also home to some of the city’s most stylish residents, making for an interesting scene when they intersect at local hangouts. North Bondi is best if you’re looking to take a dip. For a stunning backdrop, head to Icebergs for Instagram-worthy views.

Bondi has always been a suggestive temptress, never shy of showing a bit of leg, sun-baking topless, or sashaying sassily with the sand between her toes. She’s tarty and glamorous, rough and ready, drinking beer from a champagne flute, attracting Hollywood celebs and backpacking hobos alike as they all slap zinc on their noses. Located only 7km from Sydney’s CBD, the fine vanilla sand of its crescent-moon shape is Sydney’s - nay, the world’s - most famous beach.

Definitively Sydney, Bondi is one of the world’s great beaches. It’s the closest ocean beach to the city centre (8km away), has consistently good (though crowded) waves, and is great for a rough-and-tumble swim (the average water temperature is a considerate 21°C). If the sea’s angry, try the child-friendly saltwater sea baths at either end of the beach, both of which received an upgrade in 2019. Free beach-friendly wheelchairs (adult or child) can be booked through the Bondi Pavilion.
