We stumbled across the Wylie's Sea Baths after parking the car miles from Coogee Beach & setting out to walk back there. The baths cost less than $5 per adult for entry & we had a fantastic refreshing swim away from the crazy crowds & no sand to deal with after either!

Definitely not just for women and children (as stated in previous review). Great situation just south of Coogee, well maintained whilst preserving an air of 'yesteryear'. Good changing facilities and a great swimming area -probably 30-35M - all with waves from the Pacific breaking over the pool walls. Nice areas to sun yourself - if that is your thing The... More

Just a great place and worth every penny. Still preserved a very pleasant, comfy and homy atmosphere. We always enjoy every minute we spend there!

Loved our swim - its only for women and children. Just watch out for the sea urchins - both my son and I got a couple inbedded in our foot and they are really hard to get out. Other than perfect spot.

This is such a nice pool, on the rocks at Coogee. It's private, you can swim safely, not worry about rips and see the ocean. Fabulous spot.

The iconic wylie's what better way to spend a few hours, do a few laps check out the sea life find shade or baske in the sun. To top it off have a mug of coffee and a tuna sandwich. Sure beats the hot sand in summer

Discovered Wylie's a few years ago and just keep coming back. Great setting, cafe on site and generally a good mix of people. Only spoiler would be having to listen to the lifeguard on duty today crapping on about his own take on the First Australians. Keep those views for your backyard BBQ mate. Otherwise a perfect spot.

Wylies is our favourite sunspot to unwind and relax, swimming in the sea pool is invigorating and the views are amazing . There is a small cafe to buy light refreshments.
