Kutti Beach

Vaucluse's Kutti Beach is a harbour gem. The tranquil harbour beach is great for relaxing, swimming, sailing and you can even take the dog for a swim here.

It is virtually unknown, unspoiled and secluded spot where you can avoid the crowds and relax like you're at your own private beach.

A row of lavish harbour side mansions reside with a front door to the seaside with large trees, gardens, lawns and sandstone fences adjacent to the sandy shore.

The western tip of the beach has a raised sandstone small headland with a large tree offering some shade and is a great location for sunbaking whilst avoiding sticking to the sand where at high tide you can enter the water from a disused boat ramp. Further west is a tiny picturesque rocky bay.

At the eastern point is the home one of Sydney Harbour's most historic sailing clubs the Vaucluse Amateur 12 Foot Skiff Club.

The wooden boat shed fits in perfectly with the nautical surroundings. It is one of Sydney Harbour's most historic Sailing Clubs with a vigorous junior sailing programme.

Entering the beach is like entering a hidden world. Public access is cleverly disguised in a narrow staircase next to the sailing clubhouse wall with a small picket fenced gate at the bottom of Wharf Road, Vaucluse.

Despite the subtle entry you are most welcome to bring your dog they are allowed on the beach and water as long as they are on a leash.

You can even swim to nearby Gibsons Beach at Watsons Bay or walk around if you fancy a meal at the Tea Gardens cafe, fish and chips at Doyles or an afternoon beverage at the Watsons Bay Hotel.

Unfortunately some of the local residences of those mansions think that it is their private beach to lord over.
