The search for a man feared drowned off Sydney's Bondi Beach has been suspended.

A man, believed to be in his 20s, went missing off Bondi Beach sometime after 5pm (AEDT) on Monday.

His disappearance sparked a search and rescue operation that included surf lifesavers, an ambulance helicopter and police.

But a police spokeswoman told AAP that the operation was suspended just before 8pm due to dangerous sea conditions and fading light.

There has been no sign of the man, she said.

Police will continue to patrol the beach on foot overnight, with the full search to resume at first light on Tuesday.

The man is believed to have gone swimming with another person when the pair found themselves in difficulty.

One of the swimmers was rescued but the man hasn't been seen since.
