There are well over 50 to choose from, including supermarkets, delis and of course numerous cafes to sip on a smoothie or a latte. When you're hungry we have great cuisine options such as Thai, Italian, Japanese, Vietnamese, South American, casual "Chish and Fips", Australian fusion and much more.

Everything is accessible within minutes by foot. Most visitors are happy to just hang out in Coogee, but if you like walking one of the highlights of the area is the magnificent Coogee to Bondi Coastal Walk, with a number of beaches en-route and great views. It takes a leisurely 2 hours in one direction, but you could stop at any of the beaches on the way and return from there. If you walk all the way to the famous but more crowded and less relaxing Bondi Beach you could take public transport back, or just enjoy the whole day out and walk in both directions with as many stops as you want. On another day you could walk along the coast in the opposite direction to Maroubra Beach. After a few walks if you're still feeling energetic you could play tennis at the local courts, or have a more relaxing game of bare foot lawn bowls with a cold beer in hand. Both activities are also minutes away. If you love the water and want a change from swimming at Coogee Beach you could take a 15minute stroll to Clovelly Beach where we have great snorkelling. On the not so sunny days, take a bus to the city 15mins to Central Station from where you can connect to any train stop, or stay on the bus a few minutes longer to centre point with all the world's high end fashion stores, or the famous opera house, the rocks, the harbour bridge or other sightseeing. All easily accessible from Coogee.

Other things to note
Just note it's an 8 minute walk down to Coogee Bay Road restaurants, but when returning a small portion about three minutes of the walk is on a reasonably inclined hill, so it's not suitable for the elderly or very unfit.
