Beach

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.

Swimming

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.

Surfing

Usually a low shore break on Denhams and Surf.

Fishing

Most fishing is done off the boundary rock platforms, with rip gutters only present during higher seas.

General

The communities of Denhams Beach and Surf Beach front onto a 1 km wide east-facing bay, bordered by a 20 m high northern point and 50 m high headland in the south with two major rock outcrops in the bay, which divide the shoreline into three pocket beaches (NSW 536-538).
