Bondi Beach is an essential part of Sydney's identity home to pristine waves and soft golden sand.
On any given day you will find locals and tourists making the most of the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk, taking in stunning views across the water. The walk is six kilometres and takes you through Tamarama and Coogee beach, overall about one hour each way. As you pass by the many different beaches embrace the beauty of each one stopping at the many cafes, parks and picnic spots surrounding, along with the stunning salt-water pools dotted along the trail. At the end of the walk lies the Coogee Pavilion, a beautiful seaside eatery for you to satiate your appetite after your adventure. Views from the rooftop terrace are second to none, and the fresh seafood will leave you content.
What makes Bondi so popular is its beauty at any time of the year. When it is too cold to swim, the area provides a mix of other activities along the headlands like walking, whale watching and golf.
As the sun begins to go down, enjoy the many beach front restaurants and cafes like Icebergs or Bucketlist Bondi to sip on cocktails and watch the day fade away.
Bondi Beach is just out of Sydney's CBD, 30 minutes from Town Hall Station. It can be reached easily by train or bus and is well connected by public transport. Campbell Parade is the main street along the beach and provides a mix of cafes and bars. Shopping in the area showcases a combination of Australian and international designers.
If you truly want to get your beach fix, stay at one of the many hotels, apartments or even hostels in the area, so you can wake up to the smell of the salty air and the sound of waves crashing. Millions of surfers visit Sydney each year to experience the world-class waves, and if learning to surf is something you've been raring to tick off your bucket list then you've come to the right place.
On Saturday, the area is filled with locals stopping by to pick up their weekly produce at the Bondi Farmers Market. Spend some time discovering the many trinkets and gifts available on a Sunday at the Bondi Markets bringing a mix of clothing, jewellery, homewares and art ranging new from to vintage.
If you're visiting in the winter months, make the most of the many whale watching vantage points. The Bondi to Watsons Bay, Federation Cliff Walk takes about an hour and a half each way and will lead you to The Gap. Here you'll access sweeping views across the Pacific Ocean making an excellent observation point for whale watching from May to November.
During your stay in Sydney, take the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk or have a drink on the water, and experience a true taste of Sydney's incredible lifestyle.
