We went to Bondi Beach on a Saturday and it was packed with people. A lot of twenty-somethings having a good time. Just walking along the boardwalk is great. No shortage of places to eats as well.

Bondi is probably the most known beach in Sydney. It's good for swimming, getting tanned and for surfing. Also the Icebergs are next to it, if you are interested in new photos on social media 😉

Bondi Beach is really beautiful and while crowded, everyone there is friendly and there to do the same thing as you, swim, sunbake or relax. If interested, walk to the right side and around the cliffs. The view is simply stunning.

The size of this beach is large compared with the neighbouring beaches. Public transport to Sidney is frequent, but at the end of the day you can best walk to the north side because at the south side you may not be able to get...More

Its the most famous beach in Sydney and probably in Australia. Its really beautiful and lots of green space if all the sandy area is taken with families, backpackers and students. If you're not a good swimmer its better to go to another beach as...More

After so, the hype associated with this world known beach we were disappointed. It's a nice beach and good for surfing but the area is tacky and overrated. It was packed on day we went but it is quite a nice beach itself but surroundings...More
