Blackmans Bay is a 700 m wide east-facing semi-circular bay backed by the small township of Blackmans Bay and containing Blackmans Bay Beach (T 467). The beach curves between bordering sandstone points and rock platforms. It is sheltered by its orientation and the southern Flowerpot Point from direct swell, with waves averaging under 0.5 m and decreasing into the southern corner. The low waves maintain a steep reflective beach, which during higher waves grades to a low tide terrace along the northern end. The beach is backed by a low grassy foredune, then Ocean Esplanade together with a large northern car park, a central sailing club and boat ramp and several boat sheds towards the southern end, with the houses of Blackmans Bay rising behind.
Beach Length: 0.9km
