I had heard very mixed reviews of Bondi Beach, some say it is a must see and others saying there are much nicer beaches in the greater Sydney area. It is currently winter in Australia and as you can see the beach is still very popular with swimmers, surfers and other sporty people. In the summer I can imagine that this beach wouldn't be as pleasant as it would be extremely crowded. Walking along the coast line, in a couple of hours I saw hundreds of surfers, swimmers and runners, a couple of acrobatic planes and jet skiers and a whale. Incredible.
