Sydney's Iconic Bondi Beach Reopened And Here Are The Best Photos Of Locals Celebrating

Bondi, we're begging you, please don't f*ck it up.

In an effort to minimise the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, major beaches across Sydney (and indeed, the country) have remained closed for the past month — as our government battles to flatten the curve of infection.

However, as social distancing laws are eased across the country, Bondi Beach was reopened this week, as part of a designated exercise-only opportunity for locals.

We've just announced ‘Swim & Go’ and ‘Surf & Go’ measures at Bondi and Bronte beaches starting next Tuesday 28 April from 7am to 5pm weekdays. 🏄‍♀️ 🏊 Find out more at

Waverley Council has also reopened Bronte Beach, despite concerns of overcrowding on Randwick Council's Coogee, Maroubra and Clovelly beaches.

While it's too soon to tell whether locals will ~play by the rules~ longterm, early pictures from the scene this morning show swimmers and surfers pretty damn delighted by the news:

Both Bondi and Bronte Beach will remain open to locals from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays only. If you do decide to go for a dip, please be safe, smart and practise social distancing at all times.
