The walkway hugs the tiny beach complete with Gordons Bay Fishing Club's wooden dinghys. The path then rises up to Dunningham Reserve, a great picnic spot on the north headland of Coogee Beach.
The beach is popular with backpackers, families and locals. There are ocean pools either side of the large beach which offers mild surf to cool off in but watch the dumpers that sometimes appear at the coastal edge.
Coogee offers many eateries and shops to stop off at. Further south on the headland is stunning Wylie's Baths.
According to Randwick Council's website: "The Coastal Walk also provides an insight into the area's social and environmental history. Randwick City Council has installed a range of signs along the walkway, providing historical information on local inventors, shipwrecks and landholders. Timber boardwalks have been designed to create a raised walkway through some of the delicate areas of vegetation and peat bogs."
