The formation of the beach and surrounding reefs makes Clovelly a large, low energy ocean pool. Lifesavers patrol the beach and there are change facilities near the kiosk.


Make use of the rock platforms at either end of the beach, they are popular spots to fish and easy to access.


Surfing is not really an option at Clovelly, due to the shape and nature of the beach. Try Coogee or Bronte for better conditions.


A children’s playground with swings and climbing forts sits just behind the beach.

Clovelly Lap Pool

The lap pool has four lanes and is built into the concrete promenade on the south side of the beach.
