Bondi Beach is a suburb of Sydney and Sydney is the capital city of the state of New South Wales.
Self-drive to Bondi Beach may be quite lousy when it comes to parking, but the public transport in Sydney is pretty convenient. We took the bus that runs between Bondi Junction and the beach every 10 minutes all day long.
When we arrived, it was raining. So we checked the stores first. You will be surprised by what they have been offering just along this a kilometer long beach, from food courts, souvenir stores to laundries.
Later after lunch, rain start to stop. We eventually walked out on Bondi’s sandy beach and found its well-known modern and trendy coastal resort near where loads of people were surfing.
It is a must to surfing in Bondi. And it’s easy to rent surf boards and boogie boards from local shops along the beach. They also offered us lockers to keep our belongings safe.
The beach is backed by attractive parkland, where people can chat, play games or take a little walk around.
Heading towards the southern headland is a fabulous coastal walk which takes you through a number of smaller coves until you reach Coogee, which is well worth it. The views are fantastic, although the journey is a little strenuous in parts, it is also relaxing and enjoyable. In the northern headland is one of Sydney’s Aboriginal sites.
We headed back hotels at about 8, by then the bus service is less frequent. And we waited about 20 minutes for the bus.
