Located at the southern end of Bilgola Beach. The rockpool is an 8 lane, 50 metre pool with concrete walls and floor.

Bilgola rockpool provides disability access. Change rooms and toilets are available.

Access from the carpark off The Serpentine. Pay and display parking is available. 

A cafe is located opposite the surf club. This location a little more "secluded"  than other beaches on the peninsula. 

Please note, Bilgola rockpool is not available approximately three hours prior to listed cleaning times and approximately 12 hours after, depending upon prevailing seas.

We are currently experiencing issues with refilling of a number of our rockpools.  Refilling of the rockpools occurs through a combination of in-situ pool pumps, ocean tide levels and swell conditions, and a portable pool pump when possible. 

There has been limited swell recently and high tides are at the lower end of their cycle which extends the time taken for pools to refill.  Pool pumps are being run when possible however they can only run during limited windows around high tides and some are being impacted by weed matter in the ocean.

Pool cleaning day change

From January 2024, Bilgola rockpool will be cleaned on Wednesdays from which means the pool will be cleaned on the first low tide after 3pm on Tuesday.

This will align cleaning with a smaller pool allowing extra staff to clean Bilgola Pool.
