When you think of famous Sydney beaches, you don’t think of Clovelly, which is exactly the point. It looks like the rocky coves of Italy, but what it lacks in sand it makes up for in sea life. The long bay is protected from fishing, and swimming in it is like snorkelling in an aquarium. Gorgeous gays like to sunbathe here and inevitably end up in the water. You’ll see rockfish and blue groper, but the human scenery above water is just as captivating as the marine life below—especially when the local professional rugby league team comes down for a dip or to cool their thighs after training.
Clovelly Beach and walking Distance to Clovelly Hotel for a lovely bite to eat
Fantastic snorkelling. You are welcome to borrow some snorkelling gear from me. Suits decent swimmers best
Imagine a giant sea pool ... Clovelly is a great place to snorkel and swim. An easy walk either up Arden St or via Gordons Bay/Coastland, its popular with families. Its patrolled, has parking, change facilities/showers, and a beach-side cafe. Dont go at low tide or very high tide, as it can be…
Beautiful calm beach perfect for young children. Lots of free 4 hour parking available.
