An absolute must-do, the Bondi Beach to Coogee walk is a gorgeous way to spend a sunny day. I had planned to do it for ages but never got round to it because the walk organised through my hostel was rained off a couple of times. I finally did the walk by myself after spending a night in Maroubra and waking up to sunshine and clear skies, it was now or never. I started from Coogee and passed some seriously stunning bays and beaches, many of them had huge swimming pools of water where you could swim without the current, and all of them had surfers riding the waves. I had a fabulous day walking the route, feeling slightly guilty as I was passed by so many runners. It took around two hours, although I stopped in a few places to sit and enjoy the scenery and paddle in the ocean. It’s a perfect place to release your inner mermaid. I won’t talk too much about it because to be honest, I think the pictures speak for themselves.If you fancy a good breakfast, I can recommend the little cafe just up above the natural swimming pools on Coogee Beach, they gave me just the healthy boost I needed before setting out on my walk. Take a bottle of water, even in winter it gets pretty sunny and warm doing the walk – but there are plenty of water points along the way to top up. Definitely wear trainers, I had sandals on which were okay but definitely not as comfy as my Converse would have been. When you finish the walk at Bondi, there’s the rest of the day to be spent relaxing on the beach, or chilling in the town.
Have you done the Coogee to Bondi walk? Which was your favourite bay? Can you recommend any other coastal walks you’ve done?
