Bondi Beach, Sydney
(3.8/5 based on 3,800+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Bondi Beach into our Sydney itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Sydney.
