Gordon's Bay is not patrolled by lifeguards.
The main recreational facilities of the bay include the Eastern Beaches Coastal Walk, the Gordon's Bay Amateur Fishing Club, scuba diving activities and the underwater dive trail within the bay. It is also used for recreational activities such as jogging, relaxing, swimming and snorkelling.
The fishing club has a small clubhouse at the head of the bay. The beach is very small and contains timber boat racks and boats that provide the bay with a distinctive character.
Access to the reserve areas of the bay is limited to pedestrians via Major Street, Tower Street, Oak Street, Thorpe Street, Victory Street and Clovelly Beach/Gordon's Bay car park. Access to the beach is limited by the boats and boat racks.
The Gordon's 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. Copies of the Plan of Management are available for purchase at a cost of $20. Contact us.
