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.

I love coogee beach. When I was a little kid it was way cooler. This is one of the less pretentious Sydney beaches. It is very family friendly during the day. In the past I've found the water a little rough but you could say that about bronte too. It's a pretty spot it's apart of the cliff walk. Good... More

This wide beach is outstanding with brown sugar sand and salt pools at each end and a kiddie pool filled at high tide. Nice walking beach with outlook at each end and a grassed area with picnic tables and restaurants close by and a seasonally opened canteen near the lifguard station. The lifeguards mark off the safest area daily. Coogee... More

Stayed at Crowne Plaza Coogee beach for 9 days and i can only recommend both. Nice beach and not as crowded as Bondi. Nearby Gordons bay was also nice as well as the coastal walk from Coogee to Bondi.

The beach and headland are outstandingly beautiful with terrific walking paths all the way. The park at the beach is lovely and entices you to have family BBQs or a quiet evening stroll.

Does one enjoy high level snoberry? If so go here . The Aussies really do undeserved aloofness so well. What a tragic little place. Avoid at all costs if you know what's good for you. This place is basically a joke.
