Inspired by the relaxing holiday atmosphere of Sydney's outdoor pools, Massage by the sea was launched in 1998. Massage by the sea is Sydney's oldest outdoor resort-style massage therapy centre. A massage on the decks of Wylie's Baths has become a much-loved local tradition in Coogee.

Reception Hours at Massage By The Seas (Clovelly Road Clinic)
Outside of reception hours you can leave a message or speak to a therapist on-site if they are not in treatment.
Online: Check availability and book here
Please aim to arrive 15 minutes before your treatment to allow for parking and fill in a new client card.
Please wear or bring your bathing suit to your appointment. If you have a swim, please ensure that you rinse and dry yourself prior to your massage. You will always be professionally draped during your treatment.
The outdoors treatments take place out of the sun under a marquee, on the deck overlooking the ocean. As you enter Wylie’s, turn left and you will find us at the far Northern end of the deck.
If the therapist is busy with another client, please do not disturb them.
Please take a new client card from the table and fill it in before your treatment.
We would like to say that our massages will happen rain, hail or shine! And often, even with a little light rain, we can manage this with some sheltering and extra draping (we also have an outdoors heater to keep you cozy!) However, in the case of extra windy or cold weather, we will contact you to re-schedule your treatment to our indoor centre where possible or to another time outdoors. MBTS reserves the right to reschedule appointments due to weather conditions at our discretion.
