Lovely stretch

Great beach with a park overlooking the water, convenient bathroom facilities and plenty of restaurants - a great day out!

One of the must see and visit spots in Sydney. Plenty of cafes with a calm relaxed feel. Plenty of room on the Beach and usually not many waves. If the surf gets big please take extra car.

Coogee is a perfect family beach, it is a beach for all shapes and sizes, where no-one will feel they have to be "seen" as happens at Bondi. The small tidal pool near theatre club has a wading pool for children and is an iconic image. Wedding Cake Island, made famous by Aussie band Midnight Oil, sits just off the... More

Coogee beach is a lively area. The beach is a protected one by Wedding Cake Island offshore which prevents large waves from disturbing the beach area. This is far better than Bondi or many others with the exception of Maroubra Beach.

Never did the walk, but great little beach to visit whilst in Sydney, easily a match for Bondi ! Good clean front with a nice selection of bars & eateries.

Grabbed a bus to Coogee one day from the city, because that was the first one that passed us, and what an amazing find! The beach is simply gorgeous, lots of families around, beautiful spacious parkland with loads of seating. The first thing I noticed was the beautiful little pool attached to the Coogee Surf Lifesaving Club, comprising a small... More

Because of my location in Sydney, it's very easy for me to hop on a bus and get to Coogee within 40 minutes (there's a direct bus from Central), so I've visited Coogee multiple times now. Each time it's been better than the last! I notice new things each visit, like the beach library where you can swap books or... More

A nice beach to relax at, good shops around it too. A bit hard to park and usually no real waves for surfing. There are nicer beaches in the Easter suburbs though..

Explore alleys and beach side and Brazilian food there. Nice place to see something different from Sydney area if you don't have much time exploring the surrounding nature.

I stayed here by chance & was delighted. I didn't find it too crowded especially in the mornings when I could peacefully drink coffee, swim & sunbathe. The costs are expensive in the restaurants but being one of Sydney's beaches, I expected as much. A visit to Bondi beach, convinced me I'd made the right choice.
