Something of a secret beach, if they exist in Sydney, the tiny Gordon's Bay is situated about halfway between Clovelly and Coogee beaches. The small patch of sand here is flanked by sandstone cliffs with an offshore reef providing shelter from the waves. This makes it something of a favourite spot for fishing, diving and launching small boats. This is fairly evident when you visit the beach with the racks of boats at the back of the beach giving it a bit of the feel of a fisherman's cove.

The snorkelling at Gordon's Bay is grat, and that's official. A 600 metre long underwater nature trail has been set up here with a series of concrete filled drums joined together by chain acting as your guide. Along the way you will find steel plaques with information about the local sea life. The trail takes around 40 minutes to complete and you are likely to spot sea urchins, starfish, cuttlefish and blue gropers along the way.

As there is no parking at Gordon's Bay itself you will have to access the beach by the coastal boardwalk which tracks round the bay. Not only does this mean you get a lovely walk around to the beach, but it keeps the numbers down making the beach here a relative haven of tranquility.
