This was our very first trip to Australia, and Bondi our very first attraction after arriving in Sydney, and set the stage for a near perfect five days in paradise. The sand, the waves, the scenery, the friendly people... a truly cosmopolitan, diverse, family-friendly place...More

I was disappointed by Bondi Beach. I found it rather ordinary and frankly a bit tacky. Sydney is such a fabulous city, so I was surprised that Bondi Beach didn't live up to the hype. If you have limited time, I suggest Manly Beach as...More

The beach is beautiful with fine white sand. Between the beach and road there is a field of green which is great for picnics. Take bus 333 from Bondi Junction train station. There are shops along the main road with good food and beach stuff....More

Beautiful town by the seashore with a very lively bubbly atmosphere, the cleanliness was amazing of both beach and footpaths. The choice of places to eat and shop was also great an absolute visit again 4 days wasn't enough.

I don't know when the calmest conditions are but my girls swam in mid June (which is their winter) and they didn't think it was cold.
