Adjacent to Bondi. Like other beaches, this has a lot of restos and other victuals hangout to choose from across the street (and very handy; stores/shops are a stone's throw away from the seashore).

Great beach, not big waves, normally not as many people and easier to find parking. Yummy food spots near the beach

Coogee has a nice selection of places to eat and drink after a day at the beach. You can snorkle at the north end of the beach and there are a few grouper fish there. Make sure you have a buddy with you when you go out. My favorite beach in the world and Ive been to so many.

I love Coogee Beach with all the nice little restaurants, the coogee beach hotel with beer garden, just next to the beach. While Bondi Beach is more for tourists, Coogee Beach has a lot of local people and for tourists as well :-)

A nice place to walk around on a fine day. Great views, can be a bit crowded as the day progressed. The cafes around the area are lovely for brunch spots.

It's a popular destination for runners and those that want to keep fit as you see a lot of people practising various work outs. The road which... More

This beach has a calm sea and is great for swimming and relaxing. Some very beautiful cliffs, good barbecue places along the beach, a good park in a corner...and many different restaurants to enjoy your day.

The beach features natural rock pools, crystal clear water and handy toilets. On the north side of the beach is some shady... More
