Visited Clovelly in the lead up to Christmas. It is a lovely area with trees and some seats. There is a concrete pool as well as the inlet and rock pools. A visit is best when it is medium to high tide. There is a...More
The sheltered bay of Clovelly is an ideal place to snorkel and become familiar with the local marine life. Some great cafes nearby and you’ll find lots of free in street parking. It’s just along the costal walk too. Make sure to stop off with...More
Clovelly beach is one of the best snorkelling spots for first time snorkelers.
It has calm water, friendly massive blue gropers, plenty of small fishes, plus beautiful sea flora and fauna.
6 year old daughter had her first snorkelling last week and had a lot...More
One of my favourite beaches. Very different to others as there are no real waves, as it is a narrow inlet between rocks. The sand part is quite long and when you enter the water it takes awhile to get deep, which makes it good...More
We were in Clovelly over the winter recently and were happy to discover that the beach and park area was as fine to walk on and around as ever.The paths were firm, the tracks hard and the scenery awe inspiring.
It was quite an interesting beach, thin and narrow and stretching back into the land in a narrow inlet. Too bad they concreted both sides of the narrow beach but it does give folks an interesting place to swim.
This was a very interesting place to visit, the walk up and down the old cobbled road was definitely worth it, the village was so interesting to walk around. It gave my 11 year old a great insight into how people lived in the early...More
We were there in the winter, so didn't test the water, but lots of others seemed to be swimming and learning to dive in the protected inlet. The cafe was open for a coffee and we took a short break before heading off to Coogee.You...More
Clovelly beach is a strange beach. It's very very narrow but very very long. There is a disused pool as well which looks like it has seen far better days. It's totally strange. You can get up close to some of the crashing waves which...More
Very accessible by public transport, Coogee is the smaller, friendlier, more intimate version of Bondi Beach. Coogee is the only beach in the Eastern suburbs that does not have big waves, making it an excellent family beach. The Coogee Bay Hotel, located right across the beach, has one of the biggest beer gardens in Australia and plenty of entertainment every night of the week. Be on the lookout for celebrity
footballers! A little further south is Wylie’s Baths, offering sweeping 180 degree views over the Pacific Ocean, and it is perfect for a swim or a few laps. Plenty of dining choices surround the beach, including the famous fish and chips.

There is no charge at this beach, it is a beautiful, free public beach. There are fish all year round, it is safe and clean. This is the first month I would swim after winter. The sea temperature is warming up to about 20 degrees Celsius. It will continue to warm up to about 24 in January and you can swim comfortably until the end of April. Enjoy
