Amazing location with stunning views and perfect for hosting an event, a celebration or a party. We had 120 people for my 50th and even the locals were blown away by the venue. The interstate visitors have not stopped raving about it.

Had a lovely afternoon at the Wylie Baths. Swam, sunned and had fun with friends. The lifesavers were lovely and helpful. Do watch for the urchins that live on the rock walls and bathing shoes recommended!

My husband and I were doing the coastal walk from Malabar to Coogee and were thinking of having a coffee here but when I approached the clerk to use the amenities ( I was desperate after walking for over an hour without any other amenity choice-) he refused telling me it was an insurance issue! What? If I ordered coffee... More

The water here gets warm in March/April and Wiley's is one of the best places to enjoy it. Particularly when the ocean is less pleasant. Gorgeous outlook, good coffee, cool change rooms and even yoga. But, you're really here for the swim and you can do your laps with your goggles (to spot the fish) and get a good workout.... More

Whylies baths has all the amenities of a swimming pool but is an ocean swim. Great place to enjoy nature up close without being swept out to sea or eaten by a shark!

Walk along on the right hand side of Coogee beach past the Ladies only baths to find this little piece of time gone by. Nice cafe to sit and watch if you wish or pay a nominal fee to bathe. Great place to while away the hours and amazing views

This place is simply magical. Whether it's a calm day and low tide, or an exciting swell crashing into the pool, a swim at Wylies is an experience to remember and savour. They make great coffee at the kiosk too

A little bit of Olympic history started here a Wylie's Baths. Ensure you read the wall plaques on the wall adjacent to the kiosk. The pool was 21 degrees and totally refreshing, not crowded and enough room to do laps or float about. Toliets and cold showers located near the kiosk. Adult - $4:80. Lifeguard present.

What's not to like? Fantastic 50 yard ocean baths, 22 laps equal Km. Clean seawater pool with a natural rock bottom. Enjoy the sea life as you do the laps. $4.80 for a swim but worth every penny. It can get very bumpy if there is a decent swell at high tide, but that adds to the excitement. If you... More

Wonderful coastal walk, cafe's and beautiful beach. Every activity is catered for, yoga, walking, swimming. Great food and bars along with a great choice of accommodation. Easy access to Sydney City Centre where transport to anywhere is available. A great place to be based in Sydney.
