Move To: Bondi Beach
Bondi is so much more than its beautiful beach.
If you’ve just moved to Bondi Beach, it doesn’t take a genius to work out that you’re partial to a bit of beachy brilliance and that the star attraction lies in a stretch of sand. Despite the attractive allure of a swim in the sun, the suburb of Bondi Beach is much more beyond the beach.
If you’re looking to sit back with a drink and take in the scenery, it’s virtually impossible to look beyond The Bucket List. Set on the foreshore of Sydney’s most famous beach this playful venue offers delicious meals from tacos to burgers; as well as a flirtatious cocktail menu with titles such as ‘Get Jolly Rogered’ and ‘Shave The Hair Off A Dog’. If you’re looking for something less casual then head over to Icebergs bar for some more formal fun – just make sure you swap your flip flops for something with a bit more coverage.
Whether you prefer your coffee single origin, cold pressed or iced, Bondi Beach has numerous offerings to help give you a boost after your move. Here are a few standouts: Sensory Lab serves up a great drop from their coffee cavern at 75-79 Hall St and Bondi Picnic, just down the road at 101 Hall Street, do justice to their supply of Little Marionette beans. Some other standouts include Lox Stock and Barrel and Sonoma Bakery Cafe.
There are literally hundreds of restaurants to be explored in Bondi Beach covering the full spectrum of cuisines from all corner of the globe. This beachy burb is a hotspot for budding restauranteurs and innovative chefs, attracting foodies from all around the world. If you’re out with the kids, head to Da Orazio Pizza and Porchetta for a wood-fired feast or Neighbourhood which offers a mellow, friendly, casual dining vibe. Sefa Kitchen is your best bet for something Middle-Eastern, while Panama House brings the best of Central America to Sydney.
At the end of the day, regardless of what you’re looking for, Bondi Beach can bring it. And if all else fails, you can always head for some surf, sun and sand.
