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.
