Rising above Sydney’s famous Bondi Beach, Bondi quietly watches surfers hit the lip from its elevated perch in the city’s eastern suburbs. Bondi’s relative shyness to its rowdy neighbor doesn’t mean it lacks style, charisma, or personality. On the contrary, its local shops are neighborhood institutions and its classic bungalows preserve its beach town charm. Share a brew on Bondi Road or skate to the beach with your board—it’s easy to take it easy in Bondi.See 170 places to stay Save this neighborhood
Bondi: A Bustling Hub Minutes from the Beach
I told my Brisbane cousin once that Bondi was the centre of the universe and he said “It might be the centre of your universe maybe.” But honestly, being in the heart of Sydney's three iconic eastern beaches is the best possible place to stay in Sydney. Each beach has a completely different feel from the others and they're all connected by a stunning cliff walk."
