Cronulla 2230, NSW
The strong rips continue down the Elouera section of beach (NSW 334c) to the 10 m high Princes St seawall. This 350 m long wall protrudes onto the beach, at times separating it from the southern North Cronulla section. The seawall has degraded the beach amenity and access and adds an additional hazard to the beach.
There are usually 10 rips along the patrolled section of beach, with 10 more up into Greenhills. While the southern rips are stronger you have the benefit of the surf clubs and the flags, which you should definitely stay between. When the bars are attached stay on them and away from the rips, which usually lie to either side. When a trough runs between the beach and the bar check the side current and depth before attempting to swim out to the bar, as you can easily be swept into a rip. If at all unsure then there is a rock pool on the southern rock platform.
