One hundred and fifty metres to the east is 320 m long Clareville Beach (BB 16), which curves to the east, then northeast along the base of backing slopes. It consists of a narrow strip of high tide sand fronted by 50 m wide intertidal sand flats (Fig. 4.188), with numerous boats moored off the flats and many dinghies stored on the beach. It is backed by a car park, grassy reserve and picnic area accessed via Delecta Avenue, together with boat launching at the northern end.
All the Pittwater beaches have usually low waves to calm conditions. However many are fronted by deep water and care must be taken with children and non-swimmers. Boats are commonly moored off many of the beaches and small boat traffic to the beaches is a potential hazard. Also be careful if swimming in the Basin inlet, particularly in the deep channel on an outgoing tide.
Usually none. However during very big outside swell surfers do find waves at Mackeral and even Snapperman.
The whole of Pittwater shore and estuary is a fisher’s paradise. It offers the beaches, creeks, kilometres of safer rocky shore, as well as the bay fishing.Read less
