Get out and make the most of your summer with a trip to Bondi Beach!
Australia’s most iconic beach is an iconic summer playground. It has so much on offer to explore and experience. So without further ado, here are our top 4 activities to help make sure your summer and Bondi visit is one to remember!
1. A DAY AT THE BEACH
Of course this is a must! It’s a quintessential summer day spent in Sydney. Not to mention this entails you having the full Bondi beach experience - swimming, surfing and sun-baking.
Whether you’re a pro or just a beginner, there’s plenty of board hire and surfing lessons available around the Bondi area if you’re keen to get out there and tear up some waves.
But if surfing isn’t your thing, and you’d rather be soaking up some rays on a perfect summer day, then grab your sunscreen, beach towel and mates, and join the eager crowds on the beautiful beach.
You can choose to either take on the stunning open ocean, or have a frolic and much more leisurely swim over in one of Bondi’s ocean pools. Whether it’s over on the south side at Bondi Baths, Wall Weekes Pool at the northern end of the beach, Mermaid Baths, the kid friendly paddling pool right beside it, or the iconic Bondi Icebergs, you can’t go wrong as you’re guaranteed a great time and picturesque views to top it off!
2. AN AFTERNOON COCKTAIL OR TWO AT THE BUCKET LIST
Cool off after a day spent baking in the sun with a trip to the Bucket List! Positioned just on the foreshore of this legendary beach, this is the perfect place to get the gang together, do some people-watching, sneak in a cheeky bit more sun and a few afternoon drinks.
This is the place to be, as you’ve got yourself a great selection of food on the menu from burgers, steaks, and ribs to tacos, salads and the beer-battered fish and chips. In addition to the classic pub bistro menu there is an extensive list of local and imported beers and a wide span of cocktails and spirits at the ready.
With its chilled out vibes, modern pavilion overtones, and unbeatable location, it’s fair to say The Bucket List is a not too shabby way to spend your summer afternoons.
3. EXPLORE THE WEEKEND MARKETS
For a change of scenery, why not take the time on your weekend to venture down to Bondi Beach Public School for a day of checking out fantastic stalls and to potentially snag yourself an unexpected bargain. Whether you’re on your own, with friends, or take the whole family, there is truly something for everyone. It's all easily within walking distance from Bondi Beach, so how could you refuse!
The markets contain both established market stalls and new up and coming innovative retailers, with the Bondi Farmers Market held every Saturday, where you’ll find the best farmer-fresh produce - seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh picked-flowers, homemade jams, artisan breads, promotional products online, cheeses and much more.
And Sundays are all about The Bondi Markets, where you’ll have a great variety of items to choose from. With handmade jewellery, hidden antique gems, to clothing, and home décor necessities. Partnered with great food stalls to feed you along your journey through the markets, you’ll be able to enjoy the day as well as find some great value products for all ages.
4. THE BONDI TO BRONTE WALK
While you’re already exploring the Bondi area, it’s the perfect opportunity for you to get out and walk around this incredible stretch of coastline. Locals most commonly know this walk as the Bondi to Bronte as many of them set out to tackle this walk daily.
So grab your comfy sneakers and get started by climbing the steps behind Bondi Icebergs. You’ll just keep following this path along the stunning coastline and even find yourself on the cliff tops edge that’ll take you to your destination.
This two-kilometre walk will take you around 30 minutes however this depends on how serious a pace you want to tale. Give ample opportunity for capturing the best panoramic shot of the Bondi Beach landscape, it may just take a little bit longer!
