Coogee Beach is one of the oldest beachside suburbs south of Sydney. Well developed, it has all the trademarks of a beach lifestyle with good amenities. These include the last remaining women’s and children’s ocean baths in Australia known as Wylie’s Baths and McIvers Baths!
The inviting white sands and generally calm surf are popular with families. It is perfect in all seasons for walking, swimming, surfing and snorkelling and the beach is patrolled by lifeguards. Alternatively, take it easy and enjoy sunbathing, shopping, dining and drinking in this lovely spot.
A memorable way to reach Coogee Beach is along a 6km walk from Bondi with spectacular views from the coastal path which has some steps. It’s said to be Sydney’s best coastal walk.
There are toilets, showers, picnic tables and changing rooms in the middle of the beach near the Arden Street bus stop. The Coogee Pavilion serves drinks and snacks include their famous Lobster Roll. There are boutiques and fish and chip shops nearby and the Grant Reserve Park to the south with a playground.
