I was surprised by how hilly the Coogee area is but the foreshore area is nice and flat. I did walk up one of the hills and got some lovely views though. A nice enough spot to spend and afternoon but nothing spectacular. It appeared to be a little quieter than Manly and Bondi so this is a plus.

Not as well known as Bondi, or being a bit biased as nice as the beaches on the north, but Coogee beach has a character of its own. Great restaurants, maybe possible to park depending on the day and time, but also start of the coogee to bondi coastal walk.

Australian beaches are always a pleasure due to the high level of activity. This is also a great point to start you hike to Bondi Beach

When I lived here, I thought the best feature was the food along the beach. Smoothies, fresh seafood, great pizza. Basic beach food, but the restaurants are very good and offer delicious options. The beach isn't great for surfing or much beyond laying in the sand and wading, swimming, etc. Beware of the jellyfish!

The beach seems more interesting than Bondi beach. You can also enjoy a day at the beach and find plenty of restaurants and cafes for lunch or diner. The walk from Coogee to Bondi is pleasant if you can walk for several hours in the sun.
