Beating the Heat at Coogee Beach and Gordon’s Bay

Summer has not officially arrived yet in Sydney, but with a glaring sun for the past few days, it is just right for a plunge.

Two friendly seaside beaches for frolicking and having that sun-kissed tan are just a few kilometres away from the bustling CBD.

Ideal for families, Coogee Beach has pristine waters for any water-activity such as surfing, snorkeling and scuba diving. It is surrounded with cliff tops where one can have a glimpse of the vast sea and historic buildings around the beach.  The cliff is also partially enveloped with lush greeneries, providing an ideal short bushwalk.

North of Coogee Beach, and a fair walk from it, is Gordon’s Bay. This secluded beach covered with large rocks on both sides is a perfect spot for those wanting a little bit of solitude from the hustling crowd of nearby beaches.
