Address
Neighbourhood: Coogee
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 footballers! A little further south is Wylie’s Baths, offering sweeping 180 degree views over the Pacific Ocean, and it is perfect for a swim or a few laps. Plenty of dining choices surround the beach, including the famous fish and chips.

Swimming in the Ocean costs nothing
Feb. 2021 • Friends
Out of all the Ocean Baths in Sydney this is the worst one I’ve swam in, and the others were all free.

Unsuccessful revisit.
Aug. 2020
About 20 years ago, I went to Wyllie’s Bath often, and if I remember correctly, it was always hard enough to find a parking spot. Since it is a tidal pool, it has always been interesting to look for the various sea creatures that came to the surface at low tide.
After moving out of that area, I went to other beaches and so now I was excitedly waiting for the meeting. Unfortunately, it didn’t really come together because the bath was closed. I circled it for a long time so that I could see it again for at least a brief moment, but the tall fence kept his secret strictly. Of course, if I had been at least 20 years younger, I would have climbed down on one of the steep trails where the young people who had fun by the pool went down, but I no longer dared to undertake this adventure. In the end, I just managed to take a fleeting look at this heritage-listed, much-loved spa.I'd love to see it again, just I don't know when will come this lucky time.

Great yoga venue
Mar. 2020 • Solo
A number of classes are held here, under the shade and overlooking the waves and Wedding Cake island. The classes can be booked via Wylie’s website- under Health and Wellness Classes.

I recommend the classes by Yogarama- as I didn’t try any others, I can only suggest that they are probably equally good. There are Pilates classes , over 50’s health and longer workshops at weekends.

There’s a great cafe, tables under shade, and the sea water swimming pool. Fantastic for families and for solo folks like me!

Poor looking thing
Dec. 2019 • Couples
May be great for swimming I don’t know, but as a historic location it looks poor from above and as an entry structure.
This area is short on refreshments. A splendid restaurant is clearly needed, but an excellent so called “kiosk” should be possible on the fringe of Sydney?

It was hot and humid in the city the day before so we decided it was time to take a trip to the beach. I love Coogee. The women only ocean pool is bliss but this time we were a mixed group so went to Wylie’s. It was fabulous - peaceful and the food was delicious. It’s rustic charm at its best.

Love his Pool!
Oct. 2019
Most relaxing and a beauiful pool in which to swim or sun-batheon its surroundings. It's secluded and has the most stunning view out to sea - in the cooler months, you might even spot the whales returning to colder waters off the Victorian Coast. This has to be one of the best sea pools on the Sydney Coast.

The most beautiful pool you’ll ever swim in!
Apr. 2019 • Solo
There are lots of ocean pools along the coast of NSW but Wylies is very special.
Like all of these pools, it is right by the beach and salt water and means you don’t have to worry about waves and rips and sharks. What sets Wylies apart is that swimming in it is like a mini snorkelling tour of the Reef. Natural rock bottom, lots of seaweed and aquatic plants and lots of fish, all blown in by the last high tide.
Simply glorious. And at the end of it, a little cafe up those steep stairs for a coffee and maybe something to eat while you sit there and reflect on why you’d ever want to be anywhere else!
You do need to watch the tides as it can be a thrill ride with a high tide crashing over the edge of the pool.
