The main beach area is in front of the Bondi Pavilion where visitors are encouraged to take a dip in the sea while swimming between the red and yellow flags. Take a walk along the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk where you may even spot a whale between May and November.
Surfers come all year round to try their luck at Bondi Beach, and there are surfing lessons available on site for those willing to learn. You can rent a board and wetsuit right on the beach, as well as some of the stores across the road. There are change rooms, showers and toilets available on site, making it a great place to have a swim and then head out on the town. There are also lockers available for hire, for a small fee.
There are many restaurants and cafes located across the road from the beach, with many restaurants opening early in the morning and remaining open late into the evening. You will also find ice-creameries, laid back bars and fine-dining venues.
Bondi Beach also hosts many events throughout the year; including the Festival of the Winds, the North Bondi Surf Classic, Sculpture by the Sea and Christmas Day, where travellers flock to the beach to enjoy a summertime Christmas. Alcohol is not permitted on the beach at any time.
