Pleasant beach - little more intimate than Bondi. Good boulevard and interesting headlands which make it more interesting by my measure than Bondi. Nice walk around either headland. Good pool if you don't want to do open ocean.

Family beach that most of the time stays flat , great to paddle and swim. The rock pool at one end of the beach is a great place to teach small children to swim. The view is always superb with wedding cake island the only visible 'land' on the water when one looks out to sea. Public transport gives easy... More

Adjacent to Bondi. Like other beaches, this has a lot of restos and other victuals hangout to choose from across the street (and very handy; stores/shops are a stone's throw away from the seashore).

Great beach, not big waves, normally not as many people and easier to find parking. Yummy food spots near the beach

Coogee has a nice selection of places to eat and drink after a day at the beach. You can snorkle at the north end of the beach and there are a few grouper fish there. Make sure you have a buddy with you when you go out. My favorite beach in the world and Ive been to so many.

I love Coogee Beach with all the nice little restaurants, the coogee beach hotel with beer garden, just next to the beach. While Bondi Beach is more for tourists, Coogee Beach has a lot of local people and for tourists as well :-)

A nice place to walk around on a fine day. Great views, can be a bit crowded as the day progressed. The cafes around the area are lovely for brunch spots.

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.
