  WHAT’S LIVING IN Bondi Beach LIKE?

Ahhh, famous Bondi Beach…. If you've ever seen an advertisement for Australia featuring an urban beach, chances are it's Bondi (pronounced "Bond-eye"). This is probably the most famous beach in the country. As you'd expect of such a hotspot, it's popular with tourists and Sydney residents alike. On a hot summer day the beach can be mobbed with up to 40,000 people.

Running parallel to the beach is the main road, Campbell Parade, which is lined with shops (many of them tacky and aimed at tourists) and restaurants. Once you start heading further away from the beach, however, you'll find the real heart of the neighborhood. These streets host great restaurants, cool boutiques, art galleries, and more mundane services like banks and a post office.

It's also home to the restaurant and bar with perhaps the best view in a city full of incredible views: above the Icebergs Swim Club is a dining room and bar of the same name. There is not a better place to have a glass of wine or a cocktail to watch the sun set. (Like other clubs in Australia, you'll need to prove you live at least 5 km away to eat there if you're not a member. As an expat you can just flash your home country's passport or other picture ID).

Most of the housing here consists of cool Art Deco apartments, condo towers, and single-family homes. Given its beachside location this is not a cheap place to live.

Bondi Beach is popular with expats (it's so cliché you'll get an eye roll from Aussies when you tell them you live here, but it's worth the eye roll), surfers, and young professionals, and it has a prominent community of Hasidic Jews.

Bondi Beach is bordered to the north by North Bondi, on the east by the Tasman Sea, and on the south and west by Bondi.
