This beach can get very busy on a hot Summers day. Good beach for surfing, walking and swim if a strong swimmer, so early or late evening is the best time to go here if you want to avoid the crowds and want to walk with your dog. Beach shop, toilets, showers and restaurant can be found in the carpark.

Clovelly is a timeless village with a steep, cobbled street that takes you back in time and you arrive at the tiny, deep blue harbour. No motor vehicles. Donkeys have been used for centuries for transport up and down Clovelly. Although no longer used for heavy loads. You can see the donkeys on most days in the village. With something for most along it's steep cobbled street. Walk the Hobby Drive coastal walk to appreciate the stunning setting of Clovelly.
