Bondi Beach is one of Australia’s most popular beaches. Bondi is just 10 km from Sydney and is one of Sydney’s most visited beaches. It is known for its great waves for surfing and beachside fun in and out of the water. We want you to be safe while enjoying all the fun in the sun so be sure to apply plenty of sunscreen often and swim in between the red and yellow flags where the lifesavers patrol. There are several different beaches you can walk to using the trails. Summertime goes hand-in-hand with Bondi beach, but it is a great beach to visit any time of the year. While in Sydney there is plenty to see and do. You can read our blog for places to see in and around Sydney, or visit Sydney’s beaches. We also wrote about 5 Day Trips from Sydney.
