Haywards Beach

- 28 Jan

1 Haywards Beach
Bermagui 2546, NSW

Haywards Beach (NSW 621, also called Camel Rock in the north and Long Swamp) commences on the southern side of the point and curves gently to the south for 3.7 km to the low bluffs and rock fronting Hayward Point. It can be reached in the north via a gravel road just off the main road, which leads to two parking areas behind the beach and on the slopes of Camel Rock. The main road runs along the bluffs behind the northern section of the beach then turns inland around Long Swamp. It used to run along the back of the beach until it was eroded by big seas in 1978 and closed. The other end of the old road recommences at Hayward bluff providing access to the southern end of the beach. The beach picks up most swell and has waves averaging 1.5 m in the north, decreasing to 1 m in the south. These produce a single, usually attached bar cut by rips every 200-300 m, including a permanent rip against the northern rocks. During high waves, this bar detaches and a second outer bar is formed, particularly to the north. The northern Camel Rock end is patrolled by lifeguards during the Christmas holidays.

Pebbly is rocky and unsuitable, while Camel Rocks is rip-dominated, but patrolled in summer, with rips extending to the south.
