Camp Cove Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Camp Cove is a small golden beach popular with swimmers and families. As the turquoise bay is for the most part protected from surf and winds, it is often completely calm. Often less crowded than other nearby Sydney beaches, it is considered a bit of hidden gem by locals. Indigenous rock carvings made by Aboriginals of whales and fish can still be viewed on the rocks lining the beach. Officers of the First Fleet frequently visited Camp Cove as well.
Just sitting on the beach allows for a great vantage point of the surrounding sea and Sydney skyline. Boats docked just off shore dot the coastline. Furthermore, the calm conditions provide an opportunity to easily view the natural wildlife. Fishing, kayaking, snorkeling, and scuba diving from the shore is common.
Camp Cove lies just northeast of the Sydney CBD, adjacent to Watsons Bay, where you’ll find the ferry and a bus stop. Or drive via Old South Head Rd and Military Rd — free parking is available, though often difficult to obtain during summer months.
Address: Camp Cove, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
