Bondi Beach

If you’re going to visit only one beach in Sydney, then it’s got to be the world-renowned Bondi Beach. Home to excellent surfing swell, honey-coloured sands and a boulevard lined with cafes and souvenir stores to boot, an entire day could be spent relaxing on this spectacular beach.

What to Do

Thanks to its consistent swell Bondi is an excellent beach for surfing, and there’s plenty of surf operators lining the beach if you’d like to take a beginner’s lesson. Other activities include watching the professional skaters at the nearby Bondi Skate Park, dining on fresh seafood at North Bondi RSL club or taking a dip in the manmade pool at the west end of the beach. Keep your eyes peeled for camera crew as the beach is the filming location for the popular Australian programme ‘Bondi Rescue’.

How to Get Here

Bondi Beach sits just a 20-minute drive south-east of the city centre in the suburb of Bondi. Thankfully the area is well serviced by public buses which depart from Circular Quay every fifteen minutes. Hop aboard the number 333 or 380, and you’ll be beachside in under an hour without having to make any changes!
