A trip to Sydney is not complete without seeing this stunning landmark, with its surfers and lifeguards who patrol the beach every day of the week between the yellow and red flags. Bondi Beach, roughly a kilometre long, is enclosed at the north and south ends by headlands. There are numerous cafes and restaurants, as well as hostels, hotels, shops and even a small golf course.
After living in Sydney for many years and then moving away, it was great to revisit Sydney and catch a ferry to Manly. To travel past the Opera House and have the Harbor Bridge in view as you head past the famous harbor shore line is spectacular. The ferry ride is relaxing and scenic. Once you are at Manly you have much to see and do. Bondi is just so over crowded and over rated. Go to Manly Beach, tons better and enjoy the spectacular ride on a ferry and upload your pics wit the free WIFI. Oh, the food at Manly is more diverse and much better.
It was great! I can't wait till the next time we visit down under and check out the famous sights like Bondi Beach. It was a bit crowded though but nevertheless we had a blast and enjoyed our meal at one of the restos nearby.
I absolutely LOVED Bondi Beach! I went on a beautiful September day (their spring-time). The color of the ocean is so blue and you can see through the crisp water. The sand is so smooth and soft! I completely recommend stopping here for a day at the beach. I only stopped for about 30minutes (not enough time). Just an enjoyable relaxing site! Way better than East Coast Beaches in the United States.
Cafe culture meets beach culture. Bars. Restaurants. Lots of tourists in summer!
Bondi Beach is also a great place to rollerblade, skateboard and bmx because of its skatepark!
Hire some skates and go rollerblading along the promenade!
We went here when the sculptures by the sea exhibit was going on and walked from Tamarama Beach(the next beach over) to Bondi and back. It was an amazing walk! I was totally fascinated by the rocky cliffs..so beautiful. Bondi Beach itself is pretty small but there's lots of stores and restaurants on the little strip by the road along the beach.
I don't know if it was because I worked everyday for 2 months at Bondi but, I really think Bondi Beach is quite over rated. I found it far too busy and full of absolute posers! If thats your thing, then you'll love it. Also what out for the rip tides. Was unfortunate to get caught up in one. Don't swim against it though.
I found Coogee Beach much better and cleaner, and full of better eye candy.
Pretty good place. It's fun and full of good looking people. The water is a bit cold, but the beach is nice and the environment is great. Go get a smootie from "Sejuiced" to cool off. I wonder if Australia just might have other beaches that are better...I've heard rumors.
Bondi Beach was everything I expected of Australia. All kinds of friendly people and great outdoor dining. There's also some great nature trails to other beaches. Don't be intimidated to take the bus to Bondi, it's quite easy.
