Moruya (heads) Beach

Moruya (heads) Beach

- 28 Jan

1 Pedro Point Road
Moruya Heads 2537, NSW

On the south side of Moruya Heads the coast sweeps south as two crescentic east-facing beaches (NSW 566-567) for 5 km south to Congo Point. The first Moruya Heads Beach (NSW 566) has been a popular spot for many years, with the Moruya Heads SLSC (established in 1933) located at the northern end, where it is backed by the small Moruya Heads settlement (Figs. 4.387 & 4.388). This offers visitors little more than a patrolled beach and a store, with a caravan park located 1 km to the south and the national park extending to the south. A well-vegetated low foredune backed by a 100 m wide series of low foredune ridges backs the entire beach, with the road running along the top of the dunes, which in part pound the backing Pedro Swamp. A car park is located next to the surf club with access down the dune to the beach, and a gravel road running south to Pedro Point and onto to the entrance to Congo Creek. The beach extends from 2.4 km between the head and sandy salient in lee of the rocks and reef of Pedro Point. It faces due east, but is increasingly sheltered towards the south by reefs that extends over 1 km north of Pedro Point, resulting in waves averaging 1-1.5 m in the north, but decreasing to the south. The beach responds with a bar usually cut by several rips in the north grading to a continuous low tide terrace to the south.

Rips tend to dominate the northern end of Moruya Heads beach with a permanent rip running out past the rocks just north of the surf club, so stay between the flags. Pedro Beach is rip-dominated and hazardous.
