Clovelly Beach, Sydney


Clovelly Beach is a small, secluded beach at the end of a narrow harbour. Families and snorkelers frequent this beach. On both sides of the bay, concrete platforms and promenades have been built, which are popular sunbathing sites. Clovelly Beach is more like a vast ocean pool than a beach because there are access steps into the water. The beach is a great snorkelling location with a wide variety of underwater marine life. A huge local Blue Groper known as Bluey lives on the beach. A 25 by 6 metre saltwater pool is located on the beach's lowest level on the southern side. People with disabilities can reach the sea through a ramp on the beach's northern end.

On-street parking is free near the beach, and there is a big free car park on the beach's southern side. There are public restrooms and changing facilities at the Seasalt Café, which is located on the beach. On the southern side, you'll find the Clovelly Surf Life Saving Club.

On the beach, dogs, alcohol, and glass bottles are not permitted.

Cunjevoi and other marine invertebrates are restricted at Clovelly Beach, which is part of the Bronte-Coogee Aquatic Reserve, with the exception of blacklip abalone, eastern rock lobster, and southern rock lobster. Anemones, barnacles, chitons, cockles, crabs, mussels, octopus, oysters, pipis, sea urchins, sea stars, snails, and worms, for example, cannot be collected alive or dead. The Reserve prohibits the collection of empty shells since they serve as habitats for living species. Except for sea lettuce and bait weed, no marine vegetation can be gathered.

Spearfishing is prohibited and you cannot fish for Blue Groper by any means.
