Bondi to Coogee Beach Walk

Bondi to Coogee Beach Walk

We set off today on a walk in the hot sunshine. Having hopped on a bus, we arrived at the super iconic Bondi Beach which was great to see after hearing so much about one of Sydney’s most famous beaches.

I must admit, I was a little underwhelmed! I felt exactly the same when I visited Waikiki Beach, another iconic beach which is glamourised in popular culture but in reality is pretty crowded and commercialised. I much prefer a beach that is peaceful but beautiful, like Palm Beach north of Sydney. How about you?

Once we had a good look over Bondi Beach, we set off on the Bondi to Coogee beach  coastal walk. It’s one of Sydney’s most famous walks, and – as we soon found out – very popular with locals. You can totally see why though. There are some incredible views and it’s lovely to walk along the coast for a while, just soaking up the views and the atmosphere. A great place for a daily run!

The walk takes around an hour and a half with the odd short break, and depending on how quickly you plan to walk it whilst taking in the marvellous scenery. I would, however, advise walking during the week – we went on a Sunday and it was heaving with locals jogging and walking, particularly as it was such a beautiful, hot day.

You never have to go far before finding a swimming pool perched at the edge of the ocean.

Just before we reached Coogee Beach, we bumped into a little beach on the way. It was so pretty and reminded me of a hot, tropical version of Cornwall in the UK. I can see why it was the setting of a photoshoot whilst we were there.

After taking in some beautiful views and seeing a handful of the world’s best beaches, I finished the day with sushi. I haven’t yet mentioned how great the sushi is in Australia – really good quality stuff. And it’s everywhere! I certainly didn’t complain.

Have you done the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk? Are there any other walks in Sydney you’d recommend? I’d love to hear about them!

    Wow! This is probably one of the most picturesque beaches I’ve seen, Laura. I am definitely adding Bondi Beach to my bucket list. That swimming pool seems exceptional!
