It's definitely a must-do for tourists. It is very nice, the waves are great for surfing, and everyone there seems to have a perfect body. But honestly, I don't understand why it is so special. Sydney has lots of beautiful beaches, and to me Bondi is just one more. The best part is that you can walk south to Coogee... More

We stayed with a friend just a few blocks from the beach and walked to have coffee and breakfast then a rest on the beach and a swim. It was a beautiful day, breakfast was a delicious frittata, a small press of dark roast, and lovely friendly people to chat with on the beach.

This is iconic. If you are in the centre, just catch a bus and you are here in less than 20 minutes. The scenery is something you only see in Hollywood movies. Breathtaking. Go for a walk, talk to surfers and dog walkers, all lovely people. We then went to a golf club nearby with an outdoor swimming pool for... More

Whether you are local (Sydneysider) or a visitor from afar, this is THE place to visit if you want to experience a Sydney beach! Don't get me wrong, it is now been 'touristed up to the max', so expect to pay slightly higher process for everything here, but for this experience, it's well worth it! went again this past weekend...

Went to Bondi for a short visit but enjoyed it much. The beach was clean and the sands were awesome. Took a short sunbathing with my cousin and enjoying the breeze. Great place to chill out with friends and family

My brother and I only spent a short amount of time here but were utterly impressed with Bondi's beauty. The beach was clean, the sand golden and the water sparkling. The most interesting feature is that Bondi is a "free Wi-Fi" beach, which kind of defeats the purpose of the beach but hey, at least you can review on Trip... More

I think it's really cool to sit on the cold sand and have a cup of coffee. Just enjoy the wind and the people passing by. I think take a walk here in winter is even better in summer. I don't like hot sand and crowded beach. Have a breakfast here is also nice.

This world famous beach lends additional character to Sydney. Golden sands, cold water, attractive people. I was there only for an hour on a city tour, and it was enough, but I was very glad to see the Bondi Rescue building, beach stations and outstanding employees (men and women), who, thankfully, had no rescues when I was there.

We visited in the winter but still had to stop by as my daughter and I love watching Bondi Rescue. It is a beautiful beach with a cool vibe surrounding it. We will have to go back when it is warm enough for a swim
