The biggest plus about Bondi Beach, in all honesty, is that it’s so absolutely accessible from a major city. There are numerous buses that go from Sydney to Bondi, and as an American for whom the Oceanside was at least a three hour, often tortuous drive, well, that’s a massive wow.
The minus? If you’re not a tat-wearing surfer- or skateboarding-dude, well, let’s just say if you are anything over the age of 35, you might feel…old, wizened, white haired. It’s just that Bondi is a beach for the young, or the young at heart.
Still – Bondi’s gorgeous. The beach and the surf...beautiful. But you may not find the cafe or restaurant culture that suits. So if you’re a tad older in spirit, then take the ferry to Manly.
