Getting to visit Bondi Beach in Sydney was an absolute highlight of our trip to Australia. It’s such an iconic place, and nothing can prepare you for the sheer size of the famous beach.
Prior to going, I’d booked us a group surfing lesson for Darryl’s birthday, so as soon as we arrived we made our way over to Let’s Go Surfing.
What an experience! Not only did I manage to stand up multiple times but I actually enjoyed it, which I really didn’t think I would! 90-minutes of constantly battling the waves and scrambling around in the sand in what were surprisingly freezing cold waters is not easy, but the thrill of it distracts you from the struggles.
Whilst a surf lesson is quite pricey, it is completely worth it and I’d do it again in a heartbeat!
After our lesson we made our way up the beach in search of lunch, when the biggest, angriest storm I’ve ever seen in my life rolled in across the coast line. This storm was so bizarre it even made UK news!
Sadly the miserable weather didn’t leave the beach so we spent the afternoon walking around in the drizzle wrapped in a towel.
Before catching the bus back to the city we checked out the famous outdoor pool at Bondi Icebergs Club and then did the coastal walk from Bondi to Bronte, where they had an art expo on.
Bondi was absolutely incredible and I would go back in an instant! Next time I’d love to stay for one or two nights.
