Clovelly Beach lies between Bronte Beach to the north and Gordon's Bay to the south. It is a small and tranquil beach, lying at the mouth of a narrow bay between two rocky ridges. A breakwater at the mouth of the bay provides protection and creates a calm swimming environment. It is particularly popular with family groups and the elderly.
The beach is patrolled in summer:
|Time of year||Patrol time|
|Summer (daylight saving)||
8:30 am to 6:00 pm
|Summer (non-daylight saving)||7:30 am to 5:00 pm|
|Winter (late April - late September)||No patrol|
Access and platforms
Concrete platforms and promenades have been constructed on both sides of the bay. There are access steps into the water, making Clovelly Beach more like a large ocean pool than a beach. The lowest platform on the southern side of the beach contains a 25 x 6 metre saltwater pool. A timber ramp on the northern side of the beach provides access to the water for people.
Plan of Management
The Clovelly Bay Plan of Management details the existing environment, the history, heritage and recreational uses of the area, and outlines the management strategies and priorities for the bay.
