Bondi Beach is Australia's most famous beach. Bondi's mixture of lifestyles would suit most visitors, whether you're drawn to the fashionable northern end or the surf-crazy south. You'll find that Bondi is one of the better Sydney beaches, simply because it has great surf, good food, and a great atmosphere. The main area of the beach is the Bondi Pavilion, where the cafes, theatre, and art gallery draw many of the weekend visitors.
The area near the pavilion is the most popular area to swim and offers the best choice between surf and safety - you can catch a wave without risking the dangerous conditions further south. North Bondi is a safer area of the beach, and is patrolled and generally has the calmest surf conditions as well as a children's swimming pool. Location – 7.8km from the hotel
