Sand Dollar Beach in Rose Bay offers a spectacular opportunity for strolling along the shoreline and collecting sand dollars and other sea treasures.
This shallow sand bar gets completely covered by the ocean at high tide, but as the water recedes, the wide stretch of sandy beach invites you to begin searching for new treasures that may have been uncovered by the waves. Take your time though- the tide is in no hurry.
Finding your own sand dollars:
Start your search at low tide- The lower the tide, the better chance you have of finding perfect sand dollars.
Watch at the edge of the water as it recedes.
The sand will wash away the buried shells.
Collect only dead sand dollars.
Live sand dollars are brown and fuzzy.
Sand dollars are great for decorating, collecting or making ornaments and jewelry.
