Bondi Beach : Sydney, Australia
Bondi Beach or Bondi Bay is a popular beach and the name of the surrounding suburb in Sydney New South Wales. Australia. Bondi Beach is located 7 km (4 mile) east
Bondi Beach is about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) long and receives many visitors throughout the year. Surf life saving Australia has given different hazard ratings to Bondi Beach in 2004. While the northern end has been rated a gentle 4 (with 10 as the most hazardous), the southern side is rated as a 7 due to a famous rip current known as the "Backpackers' Express" because of its proximity to the bus stop, and the unwillingness of tourists to walk the length of the beach to safer swimming. The south end of the beach is generally reserved for surfboard riding. Yellow and red flags define safe swimming areas, and visitors are advised to swim between them.
There is an underwater shark net hared, during the summer months, with other beaches along the southern part of the coast. Pods of whales and dolphins have been sighted in the bay during the months of migration. Fair Penguins, while uncommon, are sometimes also seen swimming close to shore or amongst surfers in southern line-up.
In 2007, the Guinness World Record for the largest swimsuit photo shoot was set at Bondi Beach, with 1,010 women wearing bikinis taking part.
with beach life so ingrained in Bondis culture, its no surprise that the area is a haven for beach and swimwear shopping on canpbell parade , you will find a number of swimwear shops, including labyrinth, Mambo and the big swim. Bikini island also on Campbell Parade, has been a local favourite since 1981.
