A very good beach with shops and cafes and coffee shops directly behind. This was home for 3 weeks and we enjoyed it all enormously.

We took a walk beginning at Coogee beach through great ocean view that ended up at Bondi. We passed by a very incredible cementery facing the ocean.

I came here winter time so the place is not crowded. But even so, it has lesser crowd and much quieter than Bondi. There are a lot of things to see in this place. There are the pools, rock formation, Giles Bath, Apparition Scene and...More

Taking the bus to Coogi beach, you can start the beach walk from here all the way to Boni. The beach itself is as good as the others with nice sand and safe swimming.

It’s definitely my favorite beach in Sydney. It’s less hectic and more local than bondi beach. There is a small pool which was built in 1947 where you can chill and swim(similar to the one in Bronte beach). Gordon bay is also in 10 mins...More
