When I visited Australia, I never went back to Portugal until I have visited Bondi beach – the most beautiful and famous beach in Australia. Bondi is popular for its great sandy beach as well as surfing. It is also where the largest running event in the world, the Surf Fun Run, is being held every August.
Bondi beach is backed by attractive parkland, suited for your relaxation, playing games or taking a walk. At the southern headland you will find a marvellous coastal walk which takes you past a number of smaller coves until you reach Coogee – a lively and popular coastal resort. You will find here various places to eat, excellent cafes and restaurants along its bay road and some beautiful shopping boutiques. During nights, pubs and clubs and live bands are everywhere to entertain you.
There is a wide range of accommodation around the beach, from budget backpacker hostels to deluxe resorts and hotels.
I had a great experience when I chose to stay at Nick’s Bondi Beach Pavilion. The atmosphere is very impressive and the foods are scrumptious. It offers a casually elegant restaurant with menu featuring the best of Australian cuisine. Nick’s famous platter with a twist, fresh Sydney oysters, a wide range of top Australian beef and the full range of fresh fish and shellfish which are prepared by their great chef makes my dining at Nick’s very memorable.
Located on the promenade of the Nick’s Bondi Beach Pavilion is the Nick’s Bar – a stylish yet casual venue that offers the opportunity to feel the full getaway experience. You can sit back and relax while taking the action of the surf along with the gentle sea-breeze during daytime. You can also admire the passing parade at sunset while sipping your favorite martini, mojito, caipirovska or simply enjoying your icy cold beer.
What makes my stay very unique is the experience of Yoga by the Sea. The yoga classes which are open for both beginners and visitors are held outdoors at Bondi icebergs where the natural soundscape, refreshing breeze and waves of oceanic energy enhances your mind, body and soul.
For me, Bondi beach is one of the best beaches in the world not only in Australia. Its beauty is really incomparable and my experience is really unforgettable. You should include this in your next summer itinerary because this place is perfect to explore, to have fun and to relax.
