It is by design very social with a large dining, social area where you can enjoy yourself, meet new friends, hang for a short time or settle in for beach life where you work locally or the city, surf the best waves in Sydney and eventually book your travels & plan your Australian experience.
Bondi Beach is one of the world's most famous beach locations & that's exactly how it feels. It seems to live & breathe the beach. Bondi beach offers a mountain of beach flavoured activities with a vibe that is unique not just to Sydney but the whole of Australia. Bondi life is about surfing our great waves, hangin' on the beach & chillin' in out cafés, bars & restaurants that provide top quality drinks & eats with a beach feel and in most cases an awesome beach view.
