Why Visit This Beach?


This 1.5km beach is suitable for surfing and fishing and its north end.

Its proximity to the national park means it is great for bush walking and bird watching.

The southern part of the beach has a rock reef which provides a natural anchorage point for the fishing boats

The Main section of the beach is patrolled during the summer months so you can swim safely here.

There is also a camping spot just north from the beach at Illaroo.
