This is the best spot in the eastern suburbs for a snorkel. You can drive and park here but it does get crowded on weekends, you can also get the bus here from the city. There are many types of fish to see, including the blue groper. You can choose to sit on the sand and paddle and wade on the edge, ( great for children) or sit on the concrete platforms that line the bay. Be careful, though it looks calm, it can be a bit tricky to get in and out and there are some deep pockets. Hope you enjoy beautiful Clovelly.

Clovelly Beach is in the east of Sydney and has a nice little beach which is favoured by families. There is a nice little kiosk restaurant right on the beach and further up the hill a great pub where you can have a very nice lunch watching the sea.

Clovelly is an idyllic cove and beach spot. Given the copious summer sunshine that was then in abundance, it was only natural that the family and i should repair there post haste. The water quality was excellent this past summer- very clear and transparent. It could also have been described as limpid.

It's a great place to swim in the sea without the discomfort of getting sandy and avoiding the waves of the beach.

Lots of concrete which makes this natural setting look ugly, very narrow beach and parklands but still popular - Cafe and lifesavers.
