One of many sea baths in Sydney – a walled-off section of ocean – this one is particularly popular with locals, and includes changing rooms, a picnic area, a kiosk and outdoor massages and yoga.

There are lots of ocean pools along the coast of NSW but Wylies is very special. Like all of these pools, it is right by the beach and salt water and means you don’t have to worry about waves and rips and sharks. What sets...More

Safer and cleaner than the open sea. Great for non confident swimmers or kids. Worth the small entry fee.

I loved this unique venue for a wedding. Great little separate area for the ceremony and then marquees down the other end for the reception. The wedding I attended had about 100 people and it all went really well.

Wylie's has maybe the biggest rock pool on the coast, with a lot of lappers in the deep parts by the wall but plenty of shallower (but rocky) areas for the kids, plus the extensive decks towering above it. Good facilities but you pay 20...More

Beautiful ocean pool, natural bottom, you see fish, the occasional octopus and plenty of other sea creatures. Finish with a hot shower and coffee. Sim in the Winter if you are game and you will often have the pool to yourself

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
