A beautiful. old-world sort of place with an amazing tidal pool and awesome 30s-style facilities. A great price (about $5 to enter), comfortable changing rooms and showers, a cafe, plenty of seating, and a beautiful natural pool with fish and coral. Very cold in the winter but well worth the trip and the frostbite!

This spectacular little gem is just south of the Coogee surf Club. It is an old fashion rock pool with amazing views. There is plenty of space to lie in the sun to work on your tan - most of the surrounds are concrete and can get a little uncomfortable after a while. Upstairs there is a big space with... More

Wylies is a throw back to a Golden age of seaside baths. First class location and facilities in a laid back friendly and family environment. Can't beat this.

Great for swimming and just hanging around. For those more indulgent you can have breakfast from the café, get massages or attend yoga classes. People also have wedding receptions there.

We were surprised that there was no place to lounge. There are plenty of free sea pools along the Bondi to Maroubra coastline. No need to pay to go here as the others are free.

The perfect summer hang out, large ocean pool with changing facilities, a cafe, huge sun deck areas but plenty of shade - and that view.

Wylie's baths Oasis is a little, mainly hidden to tourists, oasis a few hundred metres (or yards) from Coogee beach. As you look out to sea, head walk right along the coast. If your walking for more than 5 minutes or have hit Neptune street, you've gone too far. Look out for steps going down and a sign saying it's... More

I went to take some photographs for the Wylies Baths competition. Although i didn't actually swim here - it looked like a great little place that was secure and had some privacy to swim in.

My wife and I checked out the baths today just for a coffee. We found the staff friendly, the coffee quite good and reasonably priced. A lovely spot to enjoy the view and a coffee rather than crammed in a noisy cafe down the road. The amenities were extremely clean which was good to see.
