I stayed here in Coogee last July for a month and LOVED it! The beach is so beautiful and picture perfect! It's kept very clean and has plenty of life guards on hand. 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.

Coogee has an lively atmosphere and the locals are very kind. Leading down to the beach is Coogee Bay road. On Coogee bay road is a string of great cafes and restaurants. And the beach is a beauty. The beach features natural rock pools, crystal clear water and handy toilets. On the north side of the beach is some shady... More

Coogee is a beach that you can prefer over others in Sydney. It's nature, sea, natural pool, pubs and restaurants are more fun and enjoyable compared to other surrounding beaches. Even though Bondi Beach is closeby, I'd say go see Coogee if you have limited time. You don't have to spend much either, go buy a sic pack and relax... More

Relaxed and lovely. Not as commercial as Bondi but with plenty of eating options. On site change rooms and bathrooms.

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.
