What a beautifully expansive, clean beach with a really well maintained boardwalk and pavilion. We Loved everything about this area. It is a spectacular beach community and the people, both visitors and locals alike were all warm and friendly. I wish I could have spent far more time here. Remember to bring a hat and sunscreen as there isn't a... More

Everyone is talking about it, lots of stories told. I think its worth the trip. its a long stretch of sandy beach, followed by some grass to hang out and restaurants across the street. The sand beach is rather wide and full of surfers during summer. We ate at the famous Hurrican Ribs BBQ restaurant which was really tasty, reservation... More

Bondi Beach is very beautiful. We visited in August so it was a bit cold, but we actually went for a swim and it was great! Locals say they go swimming all year long, so we decided to give it a go as well. It's a great family location, very friendly and relaxing. Many nice cafes around the beach, so... More

Great time at Bondi Beach. But it was quite a bit smaller than expected. Pretty crowded for a weekday during Australian Fall, but still very enjoyable. Waves were big and there are some places to eat and shop right by the beach. Scenic, so bring your camera. There are public showers and changing rooms. Bring a beach towel!

We visited in August- it was windy and cold- but you have to visit Bondi if in Sydney! Even in winter, although much quieter, a great spot for watching surfers as you enjoy cake and coffee in the waterfront cafe. The coastal walk to Coogee is lovely with plenty of rest points and some children's play parks along the way.

A must visit for any tourist visiting Sydney. The beach is beautiful and the scenery spectacular. Very popular in the summer, hardly any people during winter months. Many places to eat and shop. Great experience.

An awesome place. Great atmosphere in and around the beach. Pretty crowded most of the time thanks to the beaches reputation. A must visit.

The beach was lovely with great sand and water. Places to change, too, if you wanted to swim and there were lots of places to eat. We didn't go for the swimming, though, but for the walks around the bay. The scenery was spectacular. The walkways were easy to use, lots of hand rails and places to see and just... More

Bondi beach is a beautiful white sand crescent beach. It can be breezy there. Take time to look at the murals on the beach wall. My favorite was the dogs.
