Clovelly Beach

Situated 9 km southeast of downtown Sydney, Clovelly Beach has something for everyone with great sand for castle-building and plenty of marine life for snorkellers and scuba enthusiasts. Lined on either side with concrete promenades and beachfront cafes, the small beach is at the head of a narrow inlet overlooked by Bundock Park to the south.

While the sandy area is a winner with children, the concrete platforms and steps on either side of the channel are ideal for sitting or spreading out your towel and sunbathing - a quick dip in the saltwater pool at the south end of the beach will keep you cool. Rocky ridges on either side create clear tranquil waters for safe swimming and snorkelling.

Facilities include a cafe and kiosk along with changing rooms and showers.

Clovelly Beach is easy to reach by bus from the city centre or you can walk to the beach via the coastal trail. It’s about one mile from Coogee and 2 miles from Bondi. However, with free parking, most people take the convenient option and drive.
