Coogee Beach, Sydney

4.6
#3 of 25 in Beaches in Sydney
Second only to Bondi in popularity, Coogee Beach is suitable for swimming, relaxing in the sun, and picnicking. Nearby is a busy shopping and dining area, where you can also find hotel accommodations if you choose to stay longer in this quaint part of the city. Though this part of the coast is famous for its dangerous shore breaks, an ocean pool lies at the southern end of the beach in a sheltered area safe for swimming. Lifeguards are on duty daily and on the Wedding Cake Island, rising out of the water about 400 m (1,300 ft) offshore. This small island forms a rocky reef that helps shelter the beach and creates an area safe for swimming Make Coogee Beach a part of your Sydney vacation plans using our Sydney day trip planning tool .

  • Although not as good as Bondi but also quite lovely to Coogee in the visit. For me all of Sydney's beaches were beautiful. Many people wrote to play beach volley, there are also BBQ there and also jogging. Same as Bondi Beach, this got a lot of restaurants near the beach.
