Beach
“Gordons Bay is an inlet/cove about 8-10 minutes walk through the northern headland park at Coogee. Its a concrete path (steep) with steps , so quite accessible. This cove was traditionally used for boat launches and scuba diving, but has become a popular local swim spot. Its safe but not patrolled, so not the best place if you are not a confident swimmer. Its very low key and tranquil. If you continue the walk around the cove you will be at Clovelly beach (which you see to the north).”
