Coogee Ladies Pool
Loved by bohemians, young kids and muslim women this place is a melting pot of everything nearby Icebergs is not. The pool is cut into the ocean below and resembles a rock pool. It’s a perfect place for a sunset dip. Bikini tops optional, and yes it does live up to its name – strictly women only. Sorry boys.
The steep grass knoll above makes sunbathing sometimes a bit of a haphazard but try your luck spreading your towel on the rocks and enjoy the scenery of nearby Coogee with enough privacy to equal a Tom Cruise relationship.
Attire: Based on the mixed clientele, anything goes, from burkini’s to the topless Ibiza look
High Points: the closest you get to swimming in the actual ocean without a fear of sharks. Less of a swimming pool, more of a large rock pool.
Low Points: Again not ideal if you are a ‘real’ swimmer. The pool is 20 metres in length, but it can get busy.
Entry fee: The best 20 cents you are likely to spend today
Best for: Women if you’re having a fat day, or feeling a little bit ‘European’
Overall rating: 8.1
