Coogee

A Sydney institution, Coogee is one of the finest of all suburban beaches, a natural haven for those who crave sun and surf within easy reach of the city.

With its glistening expanse of white sand, safe swimming conditions and superb local amenities, it is a perfect way for families and travellers to tap into the Aussie beach phenomenon.

And Coogee is more than just than just a day on the sand: it also offers abundant green space ideal for picnics and BBQs, a number of historic ocean baths, and spectacular ocean walks. The six kilometre walk from Coogee to Bondi Beach is a well-maintained pathway that delivers stunning vistas and secluded coves.

There’s also plenty of cafes and restaurants on hand, while the Beach Palace Hotel or The Oceans Bar are great places to take it easy in the shade and enjoy a cooling drink.

And just down the road, you’ll discover the eclectic dining options offered by the adjacent suburb of Randwick. While you’re there, why not catch a flick at the magnificent heritage-listed Ritz Cinema.

With so much to do and a relaxed, sundrenched vibe to savour, Coogee is a quintessential Sydney experience.
