Wylie's is a great place. The pool is a good length to get some training in if that's what you're looking for, or just enjoy the enchanting floor with loads of fish and points of interest as you splash about. There is good space to...More

Beautiful 50m pool next to the ocean. Unlike your standard lap pool there are no swimming lanes and the bottom and edges of the pool is all natural - rocks covered with moss and occasionally small fishes swimming underneath. It is glorious when it is...More

Wylies is a legendary sea pool off Coogee's north end. It is heavily populated by weather beaten locals but very welcoming. I passed a guy wearing a shirt that said "Wylies is my church " and heard another say if they ever closed the pool...More

Take the walk the other way toward Maroubra beach and see the pool the locals use (at low tide). Read the plaque which explains the historical significance of the Baths.

Fantastic place to swim and relax. Great if you don't like waves or want to do laps. Careful not to stand on the sea urchins as they hurt. Great coffee and rolls.

We went here one day after reading the reviews. It was a great place to sit and not have the waves slamming on us like on the beach in Coogee. You can swim laps or just cool off in the shallow waters. Watch out for...More

Wylie's Baths is like stepping straight back into 1907 with a neck to knee swim suit. Except the coffee is so much better now and you won't be fined if you decide to change back into a Speedo one piece. Wylie's is one of Sydney’s...More

Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the
smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi
Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs
that does not have big waves, making it an excellent
family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right
across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens
in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night
of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity
