Clovelly Beach, Sydney Australia

Located on the shores of Sydney, Clovelly Beach has attracted swimmers and fishers for a long time. Locals began the Clovelly Surf Life Saving Club movement here in 1906, one of the first in the world.

The beach itself is not large, wedged between two sandstone headlands, which protect it from the surf on most days. This makes it popular with young families.

It is also popular with scuba divers, snorkellers and fishers due to the offshore Bronte-Coogee Aquatic Reserve, which protects marine life from Bronte Beach to Coogee Beach. Extending offshore up to one hundred metres, it runs along four thousand metres of coastline. It protects the biodiversity of fish and of the marine vegetation, however limited fishing and spear-fishing applies.

Just to the north of Clovelly is Bronte Beach, while the next beach south is Coogee Beach.

Named after a local estate that was in the area previously, Clovelly is now often referred by locals as ’Cloey’.
