We walked there from Bondi beach which is a complete opposite of Coogee. The walk took an hour and a half but well worth it as Coogee is a very nice place indeed and the folk are very welcoming

Beautiful beach to hang out to. Had picnics and barbies here with friends. Best time to go swimming is early morning when it's not that crowded yet. And with shops and cafes that have amazing vegan food. So definitely I will visit again.

Morning run at the beach is so peaceful, you can find many people exercise in the morning. A lot of cafe and shop makes this place alive.

What a stunning pristine beach this is to visit! I highly recommend this beach for its clean waters and sand. It has a picnic area on the cliffs above with a gorgeous view of the coast. It's a much preferable choice to Bondi. There is...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

It's like the Oyster card in London, a card that you can top up with money and use on the public transport. Can be topped up at newsagents and stations.
