Clovelly Beach (NSW 324) is located in the first embayment, a 60 m wide, 350 m deep southeast-facing gap in the rocks. The 60 m long beach is located at the base of the bay and backed by 100 m of bare sand, then a small grassy park and walkway. The entire beach is locked between two rocky ridges that extend like two arms for 300 m seaward of the shoreline, and almost meet at their seaward end (Fig. 4.244). The net result is an almost landlocked beach. Most wave energy is expended breaking on the seaward arms, where the waves have built a boulder beach on the northern side. What little wave energy gets into the bay eventually laps up against what is the lowest energy and quietest patrolled beach in Sydney. The boundary shore platform has been edged and concreted and a small pool is located on the southern side, with the Clovelly SLSC (founded 1907) further out, adjacent to a large car park on the southern headland. Wheelchair access is provided to the rock pool. The beach is also a popular SCUBA diving site.

Swimming

Clovelly is usually calm so stay within your depth or use the pool. Beware of the seaward rocks and entrance to the bay, as these are treacherous.

Surfing

None in Clovelly Bay, but there is a rideable left break over the rocks outside the bay, and a rideable reef off the south side of Gordons Bay.

Fishing

The readily accessible and wide rock platforms either side of Clovelly are popular locations, with the beach itself offering protection in heavy conditions, while Gordons Bay is mainly used to launch fishing boats.
