Exploring the Iconic Coast of Sydney

Sydney is definitely a city that lives up to all its hype.

By: Jenny Feng + Save to a List

With a vibrant cityscape and beautiful coastlines, there is so much to explore in Sydney. We spent 4 days in this iconic city and felt it was not nearly enough. 

Where We Stayed 

Hotel Bondi 

Located right across the street from Bondi Beach, we had the best view of Bondi. There is also an outdoor patio and an indoor bar with live music downstairs which are the perfect spots to grab a bite and a few drinks. 

What We Did
Bondi Beach: watch surfers catch waves and go for a swim at the famous Icebergs rock pool.

Bondi to Bronte coastal walk, make a stop at Mackenzie Bay and Tamara Beach

Catch a sunrise at Sydney Harbour & the Opera House before the crowd sets in

Rent a car and drive along the north coast (stop at Vancluse, Shelley Beach, Manly Beach, Mona Vale Beach) - take a dip at the rock pools along the way (which were my favourite things to photograph) 

Sydney is definitely a city that lives up to all its hype - definitely visit if you get a chance and I would highly recommend staying at Hotel Bondi to be right in the middle of all the action!
