Sydney’s pool toy playground

Gordon's Bay | Sydney Beaches

Nestled in between Coogee and Clovelly beaches is Gordon’s Bay – a quiet tranquil spot that’s like having your very own giant pool. The small pocket-sized beach is lined with timber boat racks and boats, giving it a vibe reminiscent of a European fishing village.

The sand is nice, but the prime real estate is on the rocks that stretch out on either side of the beach. Perfect for sunbaking and for launching your pool toy of choice, the rocky platforms protect the bay and turn it into a natural pool. We floated around snorkelers in our favourite neon tubes, which also double as a pillow on the rocks. So get yourself some inflatables and make the most of summer in Sydney!

Local tip: Just around the corner from Gordon’s Bay is local burger joint Out of the Blue. These guys make some of the best burgers around, but are particularly famous for their signature fish burger. Grab one on your way down to Gordon’s Bay and work it off floating around the bay.
