Beachside Staycation: What to See, Taste and Do Around the Crown Plaza Coogee Beach


A well-executed staycation can be just as relaxing as jet setting off to another location, particularly if it is a beachside location in Sydney. On the M5 East Motorway I was there in 30 minutes and it’s not too far from the Sydney CBD and airport. Coogee Beach is where I headed for a weekend staycation to be pampered at the Crown Plaza Coogee Beach. It might have been too cold to swim in mid May but that’s part of the attraction of a famous Sydney beach in Winter – less crowds. It doesn’t have to be a staycation. If you are looking for a place to stay for business travel or a romantic getaway by the beach then Crown Plaza Coogee Beach would be a nice and cosy location.

I must admit, I’ve never ‘roughed it’ and been camping or pitched a tent. It’s just something my family never did when I was younger. My perception of camping has only been influenced by what I have seen on television: falling asleep under the stars, leaking tents, campfire pits, creatures in tents, sleeping on bumpy ground.

Shangri-La Sydney: How to spoil yourself on your birthday


Forget buying stuff that adds to clutter to your home. Book a staycation close to home and experience luxury for your birthday instead.
