Bondi Beach, Sydney

4.1
#2 of 23 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.

    Surfing environment and very cool atmosphere. Plenty of bars and coffee shops. Obligated visit if you want to enjoy of the real aussie environment. The beach in summertime is overcrowded though.  more »

    What's not to love! Bondi Beach is one of the world's most famous beaches and after being there, I can see why. With its fine white sand and clean water.It is a safe swim, with well patrolled waters.Great waves just from padding which soon cool you down.Some great surf shops where you can also hire boards. One can also rent sun beds and umbrellas. A must place to visit when in Sydney !

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
