I visited in summer and there were not too many people. The $5 entry fee seems to control the crowds which is great because I got brekky for about $10 and a stunning view, so $15 total, better than other cafes in Coogee with this view!

As a daily lap swimmer, went swimming at Wiley's a couple of times during a week-long stay in Coogee. While it is amazing, unfortunately the elements weren't in my favour. It was incredibly rough and dangerous - and I thought I was a strong swimmer! I would imagine when the ocean is calm this would be incredible to swim in.... More

excellent way to spend an afternoon swimming in safety as long as the tide is right, a great place to sit and watch the more adventurous surfers catch a wave or 2

Everyone tends to walk the other way towards Bondi (and well worth it); however the walk towards Maroubra takes you past these Baths. Very interesting (read the plaque) and locals could be seen enjoying the Baths (at low tide). A local icon.

The big storm of early June did it's best but apart from a few broken struts the Baths came thru again. The location is fabulous during the warmer months but still worth a visit at any time , especially when a big swell is running . On a sunny day it's very hard to beat lounging on the deck chairs...

This is an iconic experience at Coogee. A brilliant natural sea baths but in semi private area. Really relaxing, places to lie in the sun and have a cold drink. Lovely swimming. Definitely go there. Yah.

This is a rock pool with sea water. I was very surprised to be charged an entry fee. There was deck chairs, furniture and a cafe. Still a surprise to be charged to go in the sea.
