A Golden Retreat in the City: Bondi Beach

Located less than 10 kilometres outside of Sydney's central business district, Bondi Beach is incredibly easy to access and is the perfect retreat from the city. The suburb has a total population of well-over 10,000 people, and this number only increases during the holiday season. The beach in this town is extremely popular, and is actually one of the most trafficked beaches in the Sydney area. Much of the life and excitement in the town is based around the water; however, the main street in Bondi Beach is a great place to see some excitement, as well. Right along the water and tucked back on the side streets, the holiday rental options of this town are all well-appointed, modern and fully equipped for a beachside getaway.

In the summer and in the winter, Bondi Beach hosts a number of festivals, some of which are free and others that require a ticket for admission. The summer Christmas gathering is a special time for families and friends, and on New Year's, there is a fantastic fireworks display. Also in the warmer months, the City to Surf fun run is a great way to great some exercise and to celebrate with locals. In the winter, the annual Bondi Winter Magic Festival provides music, great food and even an ice skating rink. Throughout the year, there are several other festival options, including those based around art, films, kite flying, music, the water and much more.

Water-Based Entertainment

Warm turquoise waters await in the town of Bondi Beach. Swimmers are more than welcome to take a dip in the ocean, though it is always best to stay between the red and yellow safety flags. Bondi Beach is a premier surfing destination for local and international visitors alike. The surf is steady, and the waves are large enough to provide a fun ride without being overly challenging. Those visitors that are interested in learning the ropes have access to numerous surf schools in the Bondi Beach region. During the summer months, the beach is fully patrolled by Australia's oldest lifesaving club. Early in the morning, lifesavers-in-training can be seen practicing their art.

Shop, Eat, Repeat

Campbell Parade is the place to be in Bondi Beach. Here, visitors have access to a number of great retail establishments, with options ranging from small surf shops to larger fashion stores. Every Sunday, the local school grounds play host to Bondi Beach's very own flea markets. Here, local crafts, artwork, jewelry, freshly baked good and even produce are sold in an outdoor setting.

Cafes and restaurants sit in between many of the stores on Campbell Parade, and because many feature outdoor seating, patrons have the opportunity to soak in the life and excitement of Bondi Beach. At the end of the day, the town's numerous pubs and bars are a great place to kick back and relax.

Entertainment of All Types

Whether you prefer self- or man-made entertainment options Bondi Beach has something for you. Many of the activities that do not take place at the beach are held at Bondi Pavilion Community Centre. Here, take interesting classes, see art exhibits or screen films in the theatre. The outdoor amphitheatre is great for live bands and events of all types. Get some exercise while you have fun by visiting the Bondi Baths. The pool at the baths is set right above the crashing waves and stretches an impressive 50 metres long. if photography or scenic walks are passions of yours, the Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk is something you simply must try.

Reaching Bondi Beach

Within close proximity of the heart of Sydney, holidaymakers have the option to take public transportation or even just to walk to many attractions from Bondi Beach. Certain transport companies also offer convenient city and airport shuttle options to get you where you need to go.

                                                              We really liked this cozy studio apartment. It had a very nice view of Bondi beach though partially blocked by a corner of the building. Please note that the apartment is at the South end of Bondi beach and not the North end as shown on the map. Being at the south end we were able to see beautiful sun rises each morning and the early morning surfers catching waves. The gated under ground parking space was a major plus particularly in Bondi beach. Host was friendly and quickly responded to any requests we had. The building was undergoing roof repair which unfortunately did not allow use of the roof top terrace. Also note the coin operated washer dryer was shared by tenants in the building and was not in the apartment itself. We had a very enjoyable experience there and would definitely stay in this apartment again.

Everything about this location was fantastic - so close to the beach and public transportation for getting around Sydney, practically next door to a variety of tasty eat-in or takeaway options, and well situated on a generally quiet street. Of course, the best part of staying in the apartment was having Charles and Miriam as hosts. All of the linens and bedding were clean, the access instructions were clear and well prepared, and we even had some beverages waiting for us in the fridge upon our arrival. Top-notch service, and we'd definitely like to stay here again!

                                                              We loved this apartment! The location is fantastic, and the views really are exactly as they appear in these photos - absolutely beautiful! If anything, the pictures of the apartment don't do it justice - it's actually more spacious on the inside than I expected based on the pictures. Carolina was a fantastic host. At one stage during the week we needed an extra set of keys, and Carolina came over straight away to drop them off for us. She was very responsive and helpful. There are 2 bits of information I wish I had known before booking, however: 1) The hot water system is tiny. I don't have a bath at home and so always try and choose a holiday rental with one. Sadly the small size of the hot water system meant that upon first trying to run a bath there was only enough hot water to cover my ankles. This wouldn't be an issue if you're only after a really quick shower, but there were 2 of us staying in this apartment, both needing to get off to meetings at a similar time each morning, which meant that one of us inevitably had a cold shower (and the other still had to rush). 2) Walking on the floor boards in the apartment is really loud (an information sheet upon arrival tells you this is the case). I'm an early riser so was often up before my husband, but my simply walking around the apartment before him between the kitchen and lounge room was enough to wake him up too. This might not be an issue for heavier sleepers, however. Overall, the apartment is fantastic and I wouldn't hesitate to book it again for our next stay in Bondi. Thanks for having us Carolina!
