Just a 15 - 20 minute bus ride from Central Sydney to this fine golden sand beach with a wide promenade with plenty of benches to sit and watch the action. There's a variety of cafes and bars along the front esplanade and we found the locals friendly. The sand gets really hot on summer days, so it's a dash... More

We were fortunate to stay here for a couple of weeks and loved the ambience, the beach, the coastal park, the excellent relaxed eateries and shops. What a great place to live and enjoy leisure time. Lovely even in the rain.

Coogee has everything, a long expansive beach and golden-white sands. Long promenade, picnic shelters, push button barbeques, plenty of eateries and refreshments available on Coogee Bay Rd and Arden St. Public transport and street parking availalble. Something for everyone. 5 star hotel, historic rooms and motel rooms at Coogee Bay Hotel, Medina Apartment Accommodation and Backpacker Accommodation

A perpetual favourite: I love Coogee for swimming, relaxing, food/coffee options and so much more! Great family friendly beach with no/minimal surf.

We caught the bus from Redfern, Sydney to Coogee to start our coastal walk to Bondi Beach. The beach itself at Coogee lovely was nice and clean. The town had a nice laid back feel to it and would be a nice place to stay.

A nice beach with well developed trails for runners and walkers. Pleasantly surprised that the majority of dog owners acted responsibly meaning not having to watch where you placed your feet as intently. Running north to Bondi provides a good mix of climbs and flat running, with toilets and water fountains along the way. Great stuff.

My favorite beach even though it has gotten alot more developed over the years. It is close enough to be in the city in minutes yet still has a relaxed vibe on the sand with a bit of room to move. As kid friendly as a beach can be and alot easier to keep your eyes on your kids too.... More
