Bondi Beach

Bondi Beach is Australia's most famous beach. The jewel of Sydney’s laid-back beach lifestyle is home to one of the oldest surf lifesaving clubs in the world and one of Australia’s oldest swimming clubs, the Bondi Icebergs. You can travel by public transport from the city centre to the iconic beach.

Enjoy a wonderful range of activities at the white sandy beach, from swimming and surfing to sunbathing and a spectacular coastal walk. Beach picnics are popular, too, and there are delicious beachside cafes and restaurants with splendid views of the beach and the sparkling blue ocean.

The main beach area is in front of the Bondi Pavilion, where there are change rooms, a gallery and a theatre. Professional lifesavers patrol the beach all year and you should always swim between the red and yellow flags. A 50-metre ocean pool and a children’s pool are at the southern end.
