Giles Baths

Swimming in Bondi, Coogee & the Eastern Beaches

If surf isn’t your thing, don't worry: Sydney’s blessed with a string of 40 ocean pools up and down the coast, most of them free. At Coogee Beach’s northern end, below Dolphin Point, Giles Baths is what’s known as a ‘bogey hole’ – a semiformal rock pool open to the surging surf. It's good for kids and those with shark paranoia.
