There are many reasons to include world famous Bondi Beach and Park in your itinerary when visiting Sydney. This spectacular white sandy beach gently curves, one kilometre along the turquoise water of the Pacific Ocean. You may even see dolphins and whales passing by the beach if you are there during their migration. Another great reason besides the spectacular views is the many great and affordable dining choices in the area.
The southern end of the beach has the strongest surf and is therefore used mostly for surfing. Swimming is not advisable in that area due to the potential for strong riptide; however there are designated areas for swimming indicated with yellow and red flags. Shark nets are placed underwater during the summer months, and there are paid lifeguards on duty 365 days a year to protect swimmers along with volunteer 'Lifesavers' on weekends and holidays.
Besides water sports, you can also enjoy relaxing or sunbathing on the grass area in the park located near the southern end of the beach. You might also enjoy a walk along the ocean boardwalk south of the beach or exploring the many nearby restaurants, cafes, shops and bars. See our Bondi Beach Restaurants page for more information on some of the great dining options. There are also some fine hotels with great ocean and beach views adjacent to the beach.

It's unusual for me, coming from the Philippines, to see a beach by the city with pavements, buses, cars, and buildings near the shore. It was an interesting sight for me. It was amusing to watch the activities around such as surfing, sunbathing, and just simply chilling by the park. I liked the idea that the people could find a place so nearby to relax and unwind after a hard week's work. And not only the beaches, consider looking at the cliffs and it is recommended to traverse the cliff walk to amaze yourself with even more stunning views until you reach the Waverley Cemetery if you are coming from Bondi beach. That's where you will come face-to-face with the most beautiful cemetery you'll ever see.

Fabulously clean, well worth a visit if in the area. I was here about 3 years ago and there is a significant improvement. Don't miss out.

An iconic beach, beautiful and a must visit place. I stayed for half a day and enjoyed the view, water, and walks. There was a change room, showers, and toilets. Lockers should be paid for, 4 dollars. It is easy to get to the beach by public bus.

Really nice place to chill back and not get too messy with the sand coming on your clothes. Lovely area for a sunset picnic but it can get pretty packed on normal days. Not a very large park, would say it is actually quite small. Grass is nice and comfortable to just watch the sunset and the waves hit the shore
