Bondi is the most famous beaches in the Sydney area, especially for surfer. Personally I don't understand why. It is surrounded by houses and buildings, it does not have a singular shape and is is very crowded.
But it seems it is a great place to be seen on a surf board.
And the Bondi to Cogee walks is one of the main reasons to opt to visit Bondi versus Manly.
At the end of the beach are the pools of the private club. It is one of the great ocean pools you can find around Sydney.
Right after leaving Bondi, you quickly discovered the eroded cliffs and crazy rock formations. It is the busiest section of the walk but also my favorite.
Tamarama to Bronte
From Tamara to Bronte the beaches also have big waves. Some people also enjoy swimming from the flat rocky areas.
On the way I saw a spot where people were having fun jumping. But be careful, this can be dangerous with the waves pushing you back against the rocks.
Cliff area between Bronte and Clovelly
After the beaches, there is a long part of the walk along the cliffs. Part of it is on man-made paths.
Some people see to always find a way to get down to the water, be it for swimming or fishing.
Before and after Clovelly beach, you can find quieter areas which are more lagoon-like.
And there are more interesting rocks with colors along the path.
As you can see Coogee is a very popular beach:

Claire Robinson says
Thanks. Yes it does, although I do not like big waves too much 🙂
Thank you so much for this, we have just taken over the hostel in Coogee beachfront and I used this to plan our teams walk from Coogee to Bondi, thank you, I am sure without this on my phone I would have missed half of the good stuff!
