1 Surf Beach
Surf Beach 2536, NSW
Surf Beach (NSW 537) commences amongst the boundary rocks and continues to the south for 530 m to the next small point and group of rocks. Waves are slightly higher and maintain a usually wide low tide terrace with small rips common against the rocks at each end. When waves exceed 1 m, 1-2 rips also form in the centre. It is backed by a car park and grassy picnic area, with shops on the main road. The beach is patrolled during the summer holidays and is one of the more accessible and popular in the area.
These three beaches usually receive lower waves and have small surf. However waves over 1 m will induce rips, particularly against the boundary rocks, and occasionally in the centre, with the numerous rocks and reefs also a hazard.
