Beach

North Bondi beach (NSW 320a) is partially protected by Ben Buckler headland, and curves east of the rocks for 250 m. This headland reduces wave height to about 1 m in the corner increasing to the south. The lower waves maintain in a continuous attached bar, cut by a small topographic rip against the northern rocks and rock pool, with beach rips increasing down the beach. This area is patrolled by North Bondi SLSC, which averages 150 rescues a year.

Swimming

The lowest waves and best swimming is in the northern half in the patrolled areas. However rips are always present so use care at Bondi and stay between the flags and well clear of the boundary rips and rocks. The beach is patrolled by lifeguards year round, as well as the surf clubs during the summer.

Surfing

Bondi picks up all southerly swell and usually has persistent beach breaks. During big swell the northern point, Ben Buckler produces a good left. The central portion is closed to boards, leaving the higher waves and strong rips of south Bondi to the board riders. The beach breaks are of variable quality with the left into the southern headland rip holding waves up to 2.5 m.

Fishing

Owing to the popularity of the beach most fishing is restricted to the rocks to each end, both ends having permanent gutters.
