Just a lovely place to have a coffee or even a massage on the weekends, not the cheapest ocean pool in Sydney, but the changing rooms are spacious and luxurious. Lots of space to... read more

Just a lovely place to have a coffee or even a massage on the weekends, not the cheapest ocean pool in Sydney, but the changing rooms are spacious and luxurious. Lots of space to spread out on your towel on the rocks, or sit on the deck in the shade. The pool is large, though half of it is quite... More

This is a great pool. I used to swim train Herr every week day and race in the Randwick Coogee swim club. Bring some goggles to check out the nature in this gorgeous pool. Just be careful of the sea urchins growing on the walls.. they like to stay in your feet.

Sydney's cliff swimming pools are just terrific - and Wylies Baths has to be my favourite - lovely pool, great view, parking close by and a lovely ocean pool - what more could you want. A word of warning lots of steps

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
