L I F E S A B E A C H
I found that a lot of people who haven't been to Australia know very little about the place. But one name that nearly everyone has heard of is the infamous Bondi Beach. Only a hop,skip and a bus ride from Sydney's CBD is the once small beach community that is now thriving with life and one of the most sought after areas. Bondi offers the quintessential city-come-beach lifestyle, it's the extension of the city but in a bikini. And everyone, everywhere looks fabulous.
When the you need to evade the heat there's one bar that offers the best views around: Bondi Icebergs. The home of Bondi's swimming baths and social club. We spent a few afternoons there escaping the sun and sipping on alcoholic ginger beer whilst admiring the spectacular views from it's glass fronted balcony, looking over the swimming bath, the beach and the ocean.
Because Bondi is world renown you can guarantee that you won't ever be the only one on the beach. Tourists and Sydneysiders alike flock to Bondi for a bit of beach action. Fortunately it has such a wide beach so there's room for everyone, however if you want a bit more seclusion there are the local beaches only a short walk away; and Bondi, like so many other places in Australia has considered the out door life style and created the Bondi to Coogee coastal path, offering a great running or walking track with views to the destinations along the coast line.
