One walk, five beaches
Given the largely uninterrupted stretch of beautiful coastline and the chance to check out five of Sydney's prettiest beaches all in one go, it should come as no surprise that the coastal walk from Bondi Beach to Coogee Beach is consistently one of the most recommended days out in Sydney.

Whether you're an exercise buff, a beach bum, a nature lover or just plain enjoy good views, you won't regret busting out your sneakers for this one.

Strolling between Bondi and Tamarama


The walk meanders along the coast for just over six kilometers, working out to a bit less than four miles. Along the way you'll see the beaches of Bondi, Tamarama, Bronte, Clovelly and Coogee; not to mention Gordon's Bay, Waverley Cemetery and more.

One of the best parts about this walk is how customizable it is. Depending on whatever's easiest for you location-wise, you can start at either Bondi or Coogee. Not up for the whole distance? No worries. Starting on either side and stopping at Bronte is a popular alternative and still offers plenty of stunning seascapes. Want more distance? Continue past Coogee to Maroubra Beach, which will add three kilometers to your trek.

Creature comforts aren't far, either. There are public restrooms conveniently located at each of the beaches, along with restaurant options if you're hungry. Instead of spending money on buying water, bring a bottle from home and refill it as needed at one of the many fountains you'll pass en route.

Fancy more than a walk?

Bring along your swimmers for a quick dip in one of the many ocean pools and baths you'll see along the way, from Bondi Icebergs at the north end of Bondi Beach, all the way through to Wylie's Baths, located a few minutes' walk past the south end of Coogee Beach.

Pack some snorkel gear for Clovelly, regarded as one of the best spots in the city for observing life under the surface.

Put another shrimp on the barbie. Tamarama, Bronte and Coogee all offer free barbecues for beachgoers' use.

Check out the Gordon's Bay Underwater Nature Trail. This popular scuba diving trail is comprised of a 500 meter underwater path featuring glimpses of the area's diverse marine life. There are even informative signs along the way, held down by concrete weights. In clear weather, it's possible to view the trail by snorkeling as well.

Head to Clovelly Bowling Club for a scenic game of boules with friends, just $12 a person.
