Blairgowrie bayside beach is safe, calm and perfect for swimming, paddling and sunbaking. At low tide the sandbanks can be a safe play area for young children or a pitch for a game of beach cricket. The shallow water is protected from all winds except northerlies which can whip up some substantial waves.
There are barbecue and picnic facilities on the foreshore with walking tracks through the reserve and along the beach. Across Point Nepean Road the Blairgowrie shopping strip is a source of coffee and great food but if a picnic on the beach is more to your taste you will find all you need in the small supermarket.
The Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron is based around the long jetty at the eastern end of the beach. The boat harbour next to the pier is a hive of activity and small yachts sail off the beach at weekends.
