Vaucluse Bay is a 300 m wide, 1 km deep north-facing bay. At the base of the bay is an 80 m strip of high tide sand (SH 45), fronted by 80 m wide intertidal sand flats, which continue 200 m into the bay before it is deep enough for boat to moor. The beach is only 1-2 m wide at high tide and backed by rock outcrops and a low grassy reserve, with dinghies pulled up on the grass. The beach is primarily used to launch small boats to reach the boats moored in the bay. Across the road is the more extensive Vaucluse Park, housing Vaucluse House and its tea rooms.
The southern harbour beaches, while at times difficult to find and access, do offer a wide range of beach environments ranging from the predominantly tidal flats of Rose and Vaucluse bays.
The many beaches, rocky shore and jetties attract a wide range of fishers to the southern harbour foreshore.Read less
