1. Bondi Beach
It won’t be hype to say it is the most popular stretch of sand in the entire world. This shimmering, golden hue beach with rugged Ben Bucklers to its northern end and the Bondi icebergs to its southern end is one of the most favorite hanging out place of the Sydney locals.
The beach is always jam-packed with a big herd of surfers, swimmers and audience of course who simply enjoys laying down on the beach and soaking up the beauty surrounding them!
