Red algae has taken over and closed Bondi Beach as well as several other Australia beaches, to swimmers.  The high ammonia levels can cause skin irritation and residents and tourists have been advised to avoid swimming.  Check out these crazy pictures from ABC News

  1. Although somewhat on the smaller side (compared to my Atlantic Ocean beaches that stretch on and on), Bondi is a very pretty beach. Too bad folks there can’t swim, surf, snorkel, etc. I enjoyed it a number of years ago and count the days until I can return. What a great place!
