Sydney's Sandy Suburb

It's not a stretch to call Bondi Beach one of the world's better-known seashores, given it's been Sydney's favorite sand-and-surf swath since the 1800s. The perfect crescent of sand--a sunbathing, surfing, and swimming mecca--also lends its name to the adjoining suburb, packed with restaurants, bars, and cafes. (Speaking of names, "Bondi" is an Aboriginal term often translated to "water breaking over rocks.")

Besides its everyday pleasures, Bondi Beach is the site of more than a few high-profile celebrations and events every year, including the Flickerfest film festival and the City to Surf Fun Run.
