Blairgowrie is the first in a series of long, sandy beaches and wide sand flats that swing in a 24 km long, north facing arc from The Sisters to Martha Point. Most of the beaches are backed by a foreshore reserve, the Nepean Highway and Marine Drive, providing excellent public access and facilities.Blairgowrie Beach is 5 km long and backed by a continuous foreshore reserve and the highway, all the way to the low White Cliffs that form the eastern boundary. The reserve contains all visitor facilities including a narrow, 200 m long jetty, boat ramps and a camping area. This section of the beach faces north-east and is usually calm, except during northerly winds when low wind waves are generated. The beach is usually narrow and fronted by 200 to 300 m wide, shallow sand flats. The flats have up to twelve very low amplitude, shore parallel ridges or 'bars', each ridge just a few centimetres high. Numerous wooden groynes cross the high tide beach, while scores of boats are moored in deeper water off the sand flats.

Swimming

A relatively safe beach, particularly on the sand flats. Best at mid to high tide when the flats are covered. Be careful off the flats as there is deep water and tidal currents.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

You can only fish off the beach at high tide, however the jetties provide the best access to deeper bay water.

General

A long low beach, backed by a reserve and all facilities and fronted by shallow sand flats.
