Bondi Beach is a popular beach and the name of the surrounding suburb in Sydney, Australia. It is located 7 kilometres East of the CBD. The beach is backed by attractive parkland, where you can relax, play games or take a walk. It is also a popular place amongst rollerbladers, skaters and cyclists. There is a fantastic promenade backing the beach, which continues along the coast, around the headland.
At the southern headland there is a fabulous coastal walk which takes you past a number of smaller coves until you reach Coogee, which is well worth it. The views are fantastic and although the walk is a little strenuous in parts, it is also relaxing and very enjoyable.
Campbell Parade is the ocean road where the majority of the cafes and shops can be found. There is also a lively and busy atmosphere along here, no matter the time of the day. There is also a market to the North of Campbell Parade, where you can pick up some great bargains during weekend days mornings and afternoons.
You can learn to surf on Bondi, which is a must. If you already know a few moves but don't have your own board, then you can hire both surf boards and boogie boards from the small hire shop on the beach. They also offer lockers so you can keep your valuable safe when swimming.
