Swim at Bondi Beach

Bondi Beach
Bondi Beach is Australia’s most famous beach, and among the most well-known beaches in the world. So having a swim at Bondi is a must experience.

Bondi Beach is located only 7 kilometres east of Sydney’s central business district and is popular with both tourists and locals alike for swimming, surfing and sunbathing. Bondi Beach is well know for its vast sandy beach as well as its surf. “Bondi” is an Aboriginal word meaning ‘noise of water breaking’, and on a day when the surfs up its easy to see why.

Bondi Beach is patrolled 365 days a year by the Bondi Surf Bathers Life Saving Club which is officially recognised as the worlds first surf lifesaving club.

You can learn to surf at Bondi. There are a couple of operators that provide surfing lessons to help you catch that wave for the ride of your life at one of the worlds most famous beaches. Or if you already know how to surf, but don’t have your board, you can hire a surf board or body board from shops around the beach.

The beach is backed by grassland where you can have a picnic, relax or play games. A promenade backing the beach is also a popular place for rollerblading, cycling or taking a walk. Campbell Parade, the ocean road up from the beach features many shops, popular cafes, bars, restaurants and hotels with great views of the beach and has a lively and busy atmosphere any time of the day or night.
