Hubby and I were down at Coogee Beach recently for a very early meeting, and we were happy to arrive in time to watch the sun rise. Living up in the Blue Mountains we love the chance to get down to the coast when we can. It is a beautiful beach with a lovely location and there are lots of... More

I grew up in Sydney and as a teenager spent most summer weekends at Coogee. Unfortunately, for me, the beach has lost a lot of its appeal with the work that has transformed the area. I realise that this work has probably been necessary however some of the charm has disappeared as a result.

We love coming to this beach, it is always clean and has some nice bars nearby too. Family friendly, but Christmas is so much fun here with lots of of ex-pats coming down to celebrate together.

We were on the way to a friend's house in the evening. I was fortunate to see the beach in two different contexts - evening and early morning.

Beautiful beach! As mentioned, it is one of my favourite beaches in the world. And don't forget to go to Giles' Bath! I was lucky enough that there weren't many people there so it was pretty relaxing just chilling at the beach. It is a MUST each time I visit Sydney!

This the end point for the bondi to coogee beach walk. Though not so famous as bondi beach, it is nevertheless a worthwhile beach to visit as there is less crowd. Coogee beach is fairly small, but there is a very popular restaurant here. If I remember, it is called the Coogee Pavilion.

Worth staying here for the beach and local walks. Travel to Sydney CBD easy with well serviced public transport. Good restaurants nearby.

Great beach, lot of places to walk around. This beach is close to Sydney city centre and ample number of buses to get you there. Good food options.

Staying in Coogee

Neighborhood Profile
Coogee
Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs that does not have big waves, making it an excellent family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity footballers! A little further south is Wylie’s Baths, offering sweeping 180 degree views over the Pacific Ocean, and it is perfect for a swim or a few laps. Plenty of dining choices surround the beach, including the famous fish and chips.
