This is one of the best beaches in Sydney but the parking is horrible and expensive.

“Not the best, but still good”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

I wouldn't say Bondi is an extremely special beach. It is rather the surrounding with the Promenade and the laid-back surf culture feeling you get which will impress you. Nevertheless I would plan at least one day for this beach so you can make up your own opinion. If you can somehow avoid weekends, it can be nice.

I'd recommend doing to Bondi to Coogee Beach Walk as well! Just start heading the right hand side when facing the ocean!

“Iconic beach, great coast walk to Tamarama”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

Really enjoyed the coast walk from Bondi, along the boardwalk to Tamarama. Spectacular views, and nice to stretch the legs! The best restaurants are off the "main strip" of Bondi (which mainly trade on their view / location and not their food).... but Bondi itself is a very wonderful place for tourists to go - and see how Aussies love their beaches! All the beautiful people are always out in force.... great to people watch!

“Get the Bondi beach feeling”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

Its a must go I guess when you go to Sydney. Lots to see, lots to do since there Are several offers from rental and activity companies. The lifeguards Are dressed in their small (hot)red speedos when training and look 100% aussie! Lots of food posibilities around too !
