This is pleasant beach and does not draw as many crowds as nearby Bondi Beach. It is sandy and the Coogee is a nice place to stop by for lunch, drink or snack. The are also beautiful view s from the beach and walkway.

Near high tide and waves crashing into Giles pool. Gives a daring feel as you get swept about. As a visitor to Sydney it was a unique sea swim
