With a shimmering beach, magnificent coastal walk and protected marine reserve with excellent surfing, snorkelling and scuba diving, Coogee sums up the classic Australian beach lifestyle. Coogee Beach has a sweeping stretch of golden sand, historic ocean baths and plenty of green parks for barbecues and picnics, all only 20 minutes from the busy centre of Sydney. It's an ideal beach for families, with safe swimming and lifesavers on patrol all year round. Coogee is also one of Sydney's oldest suburbs, with many historic buildings. The surrounding cliff tops offer spectacular bush walks and some of Sydney's most panoramic views.
Coogee Beach is one of Sydney's great suburban beaches, located in the city's eastern suburbs. It's regarded as an ideal family beach, with calm surf and patrolled swimming all year.
As the beach curves south, a park leads to Grant Reserve, where there is a delightful picnic area with spectacular ocean views and a children's playground. These linked areas of open space are part of the Eastern Beaches Coastal Walk.
