Have been to both Bondi and Manly and I found Coogee beach far better. Not as commercial as the others. Smaller and more compact but just has a far better feel about it.

We did Manly, Bondi and Coogee - felt it was the nicest - and not too busy like Bondi. Some nice little quirky places to eat also just behind the beach.

This was a pleasant large beach and better than Bondi with extensive white sand and what appeared to be good surf. The area along the beach seemed better than some others with few tacky restaurants and tourist shops.
