Snorkeling in Little Bay Beach, Little Bay, New South Wales Australia

Maximum Depth:
15m/49.2ft
Little Bay is a coastal suburb of Sydney, at about 14 km/9 mi in the south-east of Sydney's CBD (Central Business District). Little Bay beach nestles between headlands to the south and north, providing a good shelter from prevailing sea conditions. It is a great location for snorkeling, as it is protected and calm.

Entry can be made from the rocks on the southern end of the beach. After entering, go up over the rocks and you will see a small break-wall. Follow this and admire lots of overhangs, swimthroughs and small canyons. The maximum depth of the dive site is at 15 m/49.2 ft. The spot is appropriate for all levels of snorkelers. Visibility rate is pretty good on high tide.

Water temperature is up to 21°C/69.8°F in summer and early autumn months and between 14-18°C/57.2-64.4°F in winter. Snorkelers are able to see giant cuttlefish,octopus, morey eels, schools of old wife, pipefish, yellow-tail and the occasional King fish.

Finally, it can get a rough activity during northerly and southerly swells, outside the inner bay. Note: it is also an excellent spot for night dive.
