5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2014

Relaxed and lovely. Not as commercial as Bondi but with plenty of eating options. On site change rooms and bathrooms.

“Better than Bondi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

I know Bondi is the iconic Australian beach, but having swum at both I think that Coogee is a better beach. The swell is less aggressive, the area between the flags bigger and there are less people vying for a spot, so it is a more pleasant experience.

“No surfers, more space to swim...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Unlike Bondi there are no surfers on this beach. You end up with a bigger area to swim in. The life guard area is much bigger than most beaches on the Coogee to Bondi walk. The waves are big at Christmas time. The kids loved boogie boarding but we really had to watch them. The pools on either side of the beach are fun for the family too. They can get really wild as well when the waves are high. It is also less crowded then Bondi, Manly , etc. The town is not as cute as Bondi though. You can take a bus between Bondi and Coogee.

“Beautiful scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Beautiful scenery. Slightly less hectic than Bondi.

Easier to park. Hundreds of parking lot offers more than 2 hours which is a huge convenience for those who come to have fun with their family. Definitely a must go if you are in Sydney!
