The brilliant sunshine day after day, the expansive one-kilometer stretch of clear pacific waters, warm white sands - Bondi beach Australia offers these and more!


Destination Bondi beach

Bondi Beach is unique in its own way. Unlike most beaches in the world that faces east, Bondi faces south. The beach derived its name ?Bondi? from the sounds of the waves as they bang onto the shores for a retreat. Adventure lovers can enjoy a fiesta at its rocky northern point. The tourist beach retreat is located in the suburb of Bondi, in the municipality of Waverley, seven kilometers from the hustle and bustle of Sydney. The expansive one-kilometer stretch of exclusive white sandy beach and clear blue waters provides ample opportunities for surfing and swimming. A car drive along the coast promises a spectacular view of the beach. Make use of the public transport if you are on a budget vacation to Bondi beach. You can take the CityRail train that will put you in Bondi Junction in 10 minutes to reach Bondi. Buses ply every 10 minutes from Bondi junction to the beach. A number of buses like 380,381,382 or an express bus L382 takes you to bondi beach in just 15 minutes.


Sunbathing, Surfing and Swimming

Bondi is popular with surfing and swimming enthusiasts. The concept of volunteers or surf lifesavers that whiz out to rescue during unexpected turn of events, originated from Bondi beach. So, if you are a beginner, you could safely start your surf learning lessons. Even otherwise the most experienced surfer will find surfing highly fascinating here. Swimming in the cool clear waters is an experience of its own. You should get to the north end of the beach, which is a safe swimming area. Even otherwise, lifeguard service personnel keep a watchful eye on those in water. You can restrict yourselves to the red and yellow flags that you will find on the beach to distinguish between safe and unsafe areas. A lot of shops on the beach offer on hire surfboards, boogie boards, umbrellas, wet suits and hats. Needless to say, lockers are available to secure your valuables while you unwind comfortably on the sunny sand.


Bondi beach events

Sculpture by the sea and the City to Surf Fun Run are annual events in Bondi beach that attract tourists from across the globe. An outdoor sculpture exhibition, Sculptures by the Sea exhibits works of leading sculptors of Western Australia alongside selected few international sculptures. In the City to first run, thousands of runners participate to find their way from College Street to Bondi Beach.

Kite Flying - The Festival of Winds is held in September every year. You can watch kite flyers not only from Australia but also people across the globe participating in this colorful festival. It is a feast to behold the vast blue sky filled with kites of different shapes, vibrant colors and unique sizes. The kites appear to respond to enchanting international music performances that are now an intrinsic part of the festival over the years.

Workshops and displays - Exhibitions and workshops that provide insights into the art of kite making form part of kite flying event. You can also look out for other seaside attractions such as cafes, restaurants and specialty shops in and around Bondi Beach.

Bondi Dives - There are a number of dives located at Bondi Beach. Indulge yourself in ample adventure activities and savor the scenic beauty that can take your breath away. Of the different dives located at Bondi Beach, Ben Buckler is the most fascinating one.
