Stretching approximately one kilometre long, Bondi is a popular beach in Sydney that features an array of cafes, restaurants and hotels. Patronized mostly by beach goers, the smooth sand and windy location is an attraction to locals and tourists who just want to spend a relaxing day at the bay without getting into the water.
Should you plan to take a dip, there are many lockers available at the Bondi Pavilion located just across from the beach. Otherwise, just relax over some hot cocoa at one of the many cafes in the same location. Meaning “where the water breaks” in Aboriginal language, Bondi is truly a postcard-perfect suburb.
There are many ways to get there, but if you’ve already bought yourself a ticket on the Sydney Hop On – Hop Off bus, this stop is already on your route plan. The tour picks you up from Central Station and head east towards Paddington and then on to Bondi. Make sure to spend at least a couple of hours exploring this iconic beach and suburb before hopping back on the bus for a scenic drive through North Bondi, Ben Buckler, Rose Bay and Double Bay.
