It is located in Blackburn Cove on the eastern side of Double Bay and can be accessed via Blackburn Gardens off New South Head Road.

The pool is backed by a seawall, walkway and terraced grassy slopes. The eastern half of the beach is 10 m wide and backed by a strip of grass, then a seawall-brick fence and beachfront houses, with a sign indicating the public can only used the beach in daylight hours below high water, as above high water is privately owned.
