Bondi Beach, Sydney

4.2
#2 of 29 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.

  • A beautiful beach, uncrowded on a warm summer day. We spent the day watching the swimmers, sun bathers and those with boogie boards. It sits surrounded by beautiful, ancient rock formations like nothi...  more »

  • Bondi Beach is a must visit when you come to Sydney. Great place to go for a walk and have a beautiful breakfast while watching the surf. Take the coastal walk past the Icebergers.  more »

  • We came to Sydney on holiday and of course had to visit the iconic Bondi Beach. Being from California, I love my beaches. Bondi reminded me of home, and some of my favorite beaches. It has a fun, vibrant, easiness about it. Sure it touristy around the edges but down on the beach and in the water it’s pure joy. Surfers, sun soakers, people jumping in the waves, friends hanging out, white sandy beaches, that’s what it’s all about. Lifeguards on duty in all wheel vehicles cruise the beach to keep the less avid water folks close to shore. Safety is a priority here. Bathing tops, not so much. You can also rent umbrellas, chairs, boogie boards and wetsuits for reasonable fees. Lots of shops and eateries close by. We had great fresh seafood and chips at Bondi Surf Seafood Market. Well worth the visit.
  • Went there early morning and loved the sun. Beach is perfect for families and kids to take a walk and stroll around, play in the water and/or just sit and watch the sea. Be prepared to do some lifting if you have a pram or stroller>>
  • Love this beach, just too crowded and it was so hot but once you're in the waters, it was much cooler. We also had beer on the bar near the beach which was just perfect for the hot weather. Hint: come back and chill on the beach at night with some good music and snacks, it's way less crowded and.
  • The beach, offering a spectacular view over the Pacific Ocean, is clean and beautiful. There are several decent bistros and food stalls nearby, so don't miss them out for a true experience of a typical Aussie holiday! It is always crowded with people here during the day, so if you would to plan to stay relatively solitude, it's better to come here during the evenings, with bars and good music around offering you a truly chilling atmosphere that you would even neglect to leave such a place!
  • Long coastline, clear waters, huge multiculturalism and great eateries. Amazing in all ways a beach can be 🤙🤙
