Lazy Sunday is everyday at Bondi Beach, Sydney's famous eastern shoreline. More than a scantily-clad strip of sand and rolling surf, Bondi Beach is as beloved for its laid-back bar scene and percolating cafes as it is for the backyard barbecues that fire up every weekend. Despite Bondi Beach being one of the city's most glamorous destinations, its glamor derives from its celebrity status as an epic place in the sun, not from any kind of pretension.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
