Clovelly Beach - 9kms south east of Sydney and within 1km is Bundock Park.
North of Coogee Beach you will find yourself on the well maintained sands of Clovelly, another family safe beach, monitored on the southern side of the beach by the Clovelly Surf Life Saving Club. Easily accessed by public transport, alternatively parking is available, but limited.
Clovelly Beach is misleading as you enter the car park – the expanse of ocean can be overwhelming, until you take into account the expanse of rock – there is no walking out of the car onto sand – entry to the beach is behind the Surf Club, continue on the path – past the Café – “
”, and as you walk down you will pass the 25 x 6 metre ocean pool – lane markings included, to finally reach a small safe harbour for sitting back, relaxing and feeling a million miles away from day to day drudgery.
Originally this beach was known as Little Coogee and in 1913 the search began to rename it, “Eastbourne” was one suggestion – after an English seaside town, finally Clovelly was chosen in recognition of Sir John Robertson who had this name for his home estate.
Due to the structure of Clovelly Beach which includes a protective breakwater as well as multiple ramps this beach is suitable for wheelchairs and offers calm waters and a multitude of marine life – perfect for fishing, scuba diving or snorkeling or alternatively there is a walk from the beach to the Waverley Cemetery and close by is Sydney Suburbs of Coogee and Randwick.
