Having lived a minute's walk from Coogee for a while, I can say that it was a little too much hustle-bustle for me to really enjoy it too much. I preferred heading to the much smaller, more secluding Gordon's Bay, just over the cliffs to the left of Coogee Beach (facing the ocean).

Coogee beach is accessible by bus from the Sydney CBD and is a beautiful well-patrolled beach with a super rock pool.There are many fine eating and watering places and it is the perfect venue for a day or a week.

A lot less tourists here than in Bondi. I prefer this as I wanted to relax when here. It's clean and safe with some stunning views. I like to head here to break the mould as everyone is drawn to Bondi. This is a lovely gem to find ;)

Really nice to lay out and have a picnic! Public bathrooms available, and grassy/shady areas if you need a break from the sun.

Coogee is a lovely holiday destination. Plenty to enjoy, food, wine, beach, walks and more. A beautiful beach with a very friendly ambience. Something for everyone. The iconic Coogee Bay Hotel has something for everyone and the new 'The Pavilion' is very well done with a lot of potential. I can not visit enough !! Love Coogee !!

This is without a doubt my favourite beach in Sydney, i think it has much more appeal than the busy Bondi Beach. Lovely surroundings with the cliff walk handy, many places to eat, especially brunch close to the beach. Easy to get to with direct buses from Central and other places.
