Sydney has to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I have lived here, on and off for the last 2 decades and I thoroughly recommend the place...why?
- Parking is difficult, sometimes impossible. As a Sydney window cleaner, I have often had to clean one of the many apartments overlooking the beach. At times, parking has just not been possible. Most parking areas that do exist are also paid spots, which means that a trip to the beach can sometimes be a costly venture.
- The beach can be extremely crowded. One of the few benefits of the challenges of recent months with the Pandemic, has been that 'Social Distancing' has meant that the beach has had breathing space...when it has been open at all. If visiting the beach, ensure that you don't go during peak hours, the beach will simply be too busy.
- Equal, maybe better, beaches are a stone's throw away. Coogee beach, which is literally just over the hill from Bondi, offers almost identical benefits to the iconic beach, without the same degree of congestion. And, if you want a beach that has only a fraction of the crowding without compromising on quality...then, Maroubra Beach is probably a much better spot to visit.
