Photo: Beach at Coogee Looking South
Though not as popular or large as Bondi Beach, Coogee has some 400 metres of beach, backed by parklands and with a splendid promenade. Nearby places to eat and bars complete the beach resort picture.
At both the Southern and Northern ends there are rock pools, suitable for families if the surf gets large.
There is an coast walk going all the way north to Bondi Beach, offering excellent views of the Sydney coast along the headlands and other, more secluded, beaches.
But there is more than the glorious sun, sand and surf - the nightlife here makes it a popular gathering spot. The Beach Palace Hotel has rooftop views of the surrounds and along with the Coogee Bay Hotel, has nightly music, both live and dance.
Easy to get to, you can take buses to and from Central Train Station in the city. Map showing location of Central Map of Sydney Center.
