Information

There is the new surf lifesaving club and small car park. The beach is used for boat launching and small boats use this spot to avoid having to cross the bar.The beach faces north-east and receives waves averaging 0.5 m, which tend to run along the beach and rocks and, where there is enough sand, form a shallow, attached sand bar.

The most popular spot is in front of the car park, where the surf is clear of rocks for about 100 m. Elsewhere, tidal pool and rock fossicking are more popular than bathing.When the inlet is closed or it shifts to the east, the beach can turn and continue northward until the inlet is reached, usually within 1 km. This section of beach and adjacent inlet receives higher waves and is dominated by rips and shifting sand bars and channels, and should not be used for bathing.
