The Beach is just part of what Sydney is and that is one of the warmest and most relaxed cities I have ever been in. Coogee beach is fantastic with its gentle surf and relaxed atmosphere. Great if you are single, married and have kids....More

A beach,that's it. Nothing special about it at all. Go to New Zealand instead,unless you like being ripped off.

We visited all of the beaches in Sydney and all are worthwhile. Coogee and Balmoral were standouts but Coogee completely stole my heart for the exquisite lifestyle and houses perched along the shore. I almost didn't want to visit "yet another beach" in Sydney but...More

If you're after a family friendly beach where you feel comfortable in your bathers (unlike some beaches nearby), then this is the place for you. My kids love this place.

Great to get away from the Bondi crowds, still busy in the summer, but a bit more relaxed and local. Do not miss a sunset drink at the Coogee bay hotel or Oceans bar

Personally Coogee is not my favourite beach, it's usually quite overcrowded and there are much better quieter beaches just down the road. Coogee however is a really great social place to be! Beware the waves can get lethal in Coogee!

Beautiful beach close to hotels and parks in Eastern Subsurb of Sydney. Amenities include BBQ stoves, changing rooms, etc.

Life guards take their job very seriously, which must reassure any swimmers or surfers. Impressive onshore facilities, showers, changing rooms etc. Parking can be a problem at the weekends, but I suggest taking a bus, frequent and stop at the beach. At the moment the...More
