“swim with the friendliest groper fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

fish are friendly, very safe, nice snorling opposite the last set of stairs closet to the ocean, sand white and very deep, fish swim around you, lovely. Bream, garfish, gropers, stripes/colourfurl patches/jet black lovely. Not the Barrier Reef but interetsing and pretty for those new to snorkling

“An amazing place to swim”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

This is one of the best places to swim on the coast of Sydney. It's a very beautiful cove, semi closed off from the sea by a breakwater. So it's very safe and good for adults and kids alike. The water is sublime and there are plenty of places to take in the sun. And there is a kiosk and a cafe. Nearby there are many places to eat. Clovelly in on the amazing coastal cliff walk that stretches from Bondi Beach to Bronte. Go there soon!

“Cosy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

If we talk about Sydney, the beach that pops into our mind would be Bondi Beach. However, one of my personal favorite beach would be Clovelly. Small secluded beach that is really cosy with amazing view. All you need is there. The beach sits at a narrow bay and there's also a pool for kids to swim in while parents enjoy practicing swimming.

“A special place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

Many Sydneysiders seek real estate in this area. It is a lovely beach and unspoiled. Worth a trip to Sydney East to enjoy.
