WHERE TO STAY

There are so many places to stay here in Coogee: hotels, hostels, serviced apartments and Airbnb properties are all open for business. They’re C19-safe and the doorknobs have been disinfected! Even though there are thousands of beds in Coogee, it doesn’t feel like a beach which is hammered by tourists. It’s a village, ready to welcome you to stay.

Book a staycation or weekend away. Bring the boys for a weekend of bro time or the girls for a pamper-retreat and fun in the sun. Bring the family so you can be just a quick stroll from the sand. Coogee has all accommodation options for you and your plans.

SO MANY THINGS TO DO IN COOGEE

COASTAL WALK
Walk the famous walk from Bondi back to Coogee without the sun in your eyes!
The walk along the coastline between Bondi and Coogee is 7km. We recommend you start in Bondi, have a coffee at Bronte and end in Coogee for lunch or a shower, dinner and drinks, depending on when you set off.

HIT THE BEACH!

Keep our beautiful beach open to the public this summer and make sure you are observing social distancing on Coogee Beach. Stay at least one towel length’s distance from others on the beach, don’t gather in large groups, just stay close to family and those from the same household.

DO COFFEE IN COOGEE

The hum of baristas in action starts early in Coogee with more than ten cafes open by 7am. Order your brew to take away and walk down to the beach to sit on the famous stairs right in front of the sand to take in the view and the sea breeze. Coogee does great coffee. These are our top recommendations…
