Any time of the day you will enjoy this walk. Stunning views. And every part is different. Just watch when you want to go for a run. Can be pretty crowded (especially with special occasions like sculptors by the sea).

I did this walk from Maroubra to Coogee and it was much quieter than other parts of the coast but still with dramatic views. Just north of Maroubra is an easy path along the cliffs with good views (especially at Mistral Point - go out on the rocks), plus the dramatic Mahon rock pool for swimming - as long as the sea isn't as rough as it was today. Then, around the headland is Lurline Bay, a rocky cove with surfers and fishermen and the Rob Walker Rock Pool. According to Randwick council's maps, this isn't an official part of the coastal path (you're supposed to divert all the way west to Malabar Road and go north to Cuzco St, then east to rejoin the path), but you can go down here, at least when the waves aren't too high. Down in the cove, there's no real path, you just walk across low flat rocks (possibly dangerous at high tide and rough seas), then from rock to rock, then maybe along a narrow ledge until you're underneath the houses at the end of Liguria St. Actually, there are supposed to be stairs at the north end, I think between 35 and 37 Liguria St, but I missed them somehow. I did find, however, a rough path along the wall of 21 Seaside Parade that leads up to Liguria St. I do wonder if there's a viable path north along the rocks under the houses (I went down to Ivor Rowe Rockpool at the north end to look back at the route but that end of the rocks is low-lying and the seas were too rough to explore) but, as it is, blocking off this part of the coast is a major hassle. After that, there's a well-formed path continuing north to Coogee Beach, passing several sea baths along the way. It's pretty amazing that there is ALMOST a path all the way from South Head to La Perouse. If it weren't for the stuffing around with the houses on the cliff, the Coogee-Maroubra section would be a worthy part of it.

If you are after great views of beautiful beaches, you have to give this walk a go. It's a low intensity walk, and suits most capabilities. Ramps and stairs are provided to make it accessible for more people.

Took this walk with my 3 yr old grandson and had lots of fun listening to frogs and finding tadpoles swimming among reeds. Very natural and pretty. Has ramps as well as stairs which mae it a lot more accessible for prams, strollers and wheel chairs. Lovely walk, great views.

There are many options in terms of how far to walk. You can start on the southern end of Coogee Beach and follow the path until you want to walk back, or you can go all the way to Maroubra. You can also start at the northern end of Coogee Beach and walk up to the Bali memorial and then back down and walk along the beach promenade and then follow the path as far as you fancy. A lovely walk
