What you'll do

Bondi sunrise with a lifeguard

Begin with the sunrise at South Bondi. From here there’s a great view over the ocean and you’ll hear about its dangers. Next we’ll walk along the sand and I’ll entertain you with stories and fun facts about the beach. At North Bondi it’s time for a surf safety lesson and if you're up for it we’ll get in the water for a body surf. Top that off with coffee, tea or a juice at the best local cafe.

Where you'll be

Bondi Beach, one of the most famous beaches in the world, is a 1km stretch of golden sand and crystal clear water with a rich history spanning well over 100 years of history. North Bondi, one of my favorite places on earth, is calming, clear and clean, also known as God's country.

Bondi Beach · Bondi sunrise with a lifeguard Once your body clock resets to the Aussie time zone from travel, there has to be an early bird or two visiting and up early for an awesome Bondi at dawn experience. Andrew meets and greets you as the sun begins to rise over Bondi Beach (one of the most famous beaches in the world). So, if you just enjoy the beach or an avid to novice swimmer, you will absolutely have fun while learning from Andrew. He is a tenured and official Bondi Beach Lifeguard and your swimming experiences are safe with him. Before you know it, you have now either walked or swam part of way of South & North Bondi. There will be time for listening to the history and action stories of the Bondi Patrol as well. I recommend this excursion and will probably swim more next time out. So many interesting fun facts about this beach and Andrew has the detailed knowledge to share with you. All true: 1km of golden sand, crystal clear water, body surfing, safety lesson, entertained and leaving the experience…all the wiser. Thanks Andrew, it was an excellent start to the day. That was freekin´ cool. Good on ya mate! #Ace_of_ excellence.
