While the other beaches usually have rock pools so that those who prefer lap swimming will also find fun, Coogee beach has five baths instead. Rockpools are usually free to use and more extensive, but Coogee’s spas are not substantial, but rather romantic and there are paid ones among them. Perhaps Wylie’s Bath is the biggest, but it also costs the most. The McIvers Spa only runs for 2 hours now, and cost just $ 2. Giles Bath, Ross Jones Bath, and the smallest Ivor Rowe Rockpool are free. The beach is well equipped, there are many green areas around it, and there is very effective public transport. It is one of the most beautiful beaches in the eastern parts of the city. It also has a sweet, modern playground, and in the small park around it stands Alan Somerville’s statue “To the fallen lifesaver,” a memorial to those who lost their lives while saving lives. Coogee Surf and Life Saving Club are currently closed due to major renovations. Hopefully, by the time the beach season arrives, we will be past COVID-19 and free to enjoy Australia’s beautiful beaches.

Great beach. Not too busy which is great and has nice chipper across from it owned by a lovely irish lady Mary. The water here is beautiful and calm which makes for good swimming. Nice green area right beside with park benches for picnics and theres some nice icecream shops near by.

I had taken the Bondi to Coogee walk and enjoyed every bit of it, till I reached my destination, the Coogee Beach. More laid back than Bondi, but still very inviting was my first impression of the beach. This was soon to be confirmed. The Coogee Beach is in a beautiful location and offers plenty of opportunity to play, surf, sunbathe and even has a number of restaurants nearby. One can spend a nice 2-3 hours here, just taking in the vibes of the place. It can be easily reached by bus from other parts of Sydney and is a place worth spending a nice relaxing time in. One can also take another coastal walk to Maroubra Beach from here. I, unfortunately, did not know about it and hence, missed out on it. WIll do it next time I visit Australia.

Starting from Coogee for the walk to Bondi is less crowded, a slightly harder walk but is the better walk in our opinion. The walk is 3.7 miles one way. Coogee is also great because our Uber could drop us off easily and it was not swarmed with traffic.

This seemed like the beach at the end of the line as it is way outside of downtown. But you can get there by the bus and the effort is worth it as the beach is huge so lots of room to spread out And then some good place to eat when you are done with the surf.
