there are some good restaurants and cafes on the street. you want to spend leisurely? this is it.
I know Bondi is the iconic Australian beach, but having swum at both I think that Coogee is a better beach. The swell is less aggressive, the area between the flags bigger and there are less people vying for a spot, so it is a more pleasant experience.
Unlike Bondi there are no surfers on this beach. You end up with a bigger area to swim in. The life guard area is much bigger than most beaches on the Coogee to Bondi walk. The waves are big at Christmas time. The kids loved boogie boarding but we really had to watch them. The pools on either side of... More
Beautiful scenery. Slightly less hectic than Bondi. Easier to park. Hundreds of parking lot offers more than 2 hours which is a huge convenience for those who come to have fun with their family. Definitely a must go if you are in Sydney!
Coogee's a smaller, quieter version of Bondi. Slightly easier to get to than Bondi on public transport from the south CBD and inner west.. Still gets the waves, the atmosphere and the great views. Plenty of cafes and drinking holes to get involved with. Weekends are busy, but not insanely crowded.
Similar to bondi but less hectic Easier to park Strong waves Lovely sand etc Nice one Short drive south from bondi Lots of restaurants nearby
It was everything you expect in a beach to pass a nice afternoon. I loved the hill top specially as you can just sit there and enjoy the gorgeous view. Lots of places to have a bite. The one problem is that the beach is not that big, so over the weekend, i guess it would be crowded.
This is a fantastic beach, I would prefer to go to Coogee over some of the other more "well known" beaches in Sydney. Not as crowded, clear blue water, very close to public transport , restaurants etc.
This is one of my favourite beaches in Sydney, although it is a bit smaller than the more famous ones, it is still beautiful and has lovely surrounding landscape. Walk along the beach and to the small cliffs to the side, there's great photo opportunities there (especially at sunset!). Definitely worth a visit when in Sydney!
Went here since the first few days staying near this area and keep coming until now during weekends for a walk. Beautiful beach around at Eastern Suburb. There's also Lady's Bath and only pay 20 cents per entry if you need privacy swimming there while enjoying the view :)
