I have lived in coogee beach for six months and it was a priceless experience, I highly recommend for visitors to spend at least one day by the beach and then enjoy drinks in one of the bars located around the beach.

I liked this beach more than Bondi beach. Main reason was that it was not that crowded as Bondi was. The beach itself is at least as nice as Bondi is..

Great family, couples beach. Could easily spend the day here. Go early to get parking as parking can be a problem. Good for kids as not much concern for large waves. Pool on southern end. Lots of cafes and even McDonalds just across the road. Good for people watching or just to walk along the promenade or sit on the... More

This is a clean beach, family friendly with plenty of space to lay out and have a barbecue. You can also drink on the grass. Not as congested as Bondi and therefore more relaxed. Plenty of places to eat down within walking distance and a straight shot to the CBD via bus service. Not a big surf beach so if... More

$3.10 bus ride from the city takes you in about 25 minutes to Coogee. Good coffee shops next to the beach. Great beach, similar but smaller than Bondi.

I usually spend time in Sydney during Christmas and New Year . Last year I went to Coogee Beach for viewing the fireworks show. It was fantastic, it started at 9:00pm and last for nearly 22 minutes. I enjoyed it very much and it was free compared to Harbour Bridge's and Opera House's for which you had to pay to... More

Coogee Bay Beach is great. Lots of space, food places everywhere, the tidal pool off to the left end, life guards galore and the eye candy gets risque after three p.m. Super easy on the eye.

Coogee has its own style and lots of British and New Zealand accents, its more family friendly than Bondi its more famous cousin, but it is easier to park and has great eats within walking distance, above all I like its small town feel even though its in Sydney.

We walked from Bronte to here. Took around 45 minutes. Being from NZ I was a bit shocked at the amount of litter and the lack of upkeep of the beach. Nice beach for Sydney.

Staying in Coogee

Neighborhood Profile
Coogee
Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs that does not have big waves, making it an excellent family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity footballers! A little further south is Wylie’s Baths, offering sweeping 180 degree views over the Pacific Ocean, and it is perfect for a swim or a few laps. Plenty of dining choices surround the beach, including the famous fish and chips.
