Beach

Barragga Point marks the beginning of 3.5 km of steep rocky shore, rising in places to 50 m and extending south to Murrah Head, with two beaches located 1 and 2 km south of the point. The first, Barragga Bay (NSW 635), is surrounded vegetated slopes containing houses in the north, with a public access track and from the southern council reserve. The 280 m long beach faces northeast out between the boundary headland and southern reefs, and is afforded some protection from southern waves, which average 1-1.5 m. They usually maintain a continuous low tide terrace, with a permanent rip against the northern rocks.

Swimming

Barragga usually has slightly lower waves, however both are relatively isolated with permanent boundary rips.

Surfing

Usually a low shorebreak at Barragga, with a little more height at Armands.

Fishing

Both beaches have accessible rock platforms at either end, usually fronted by rip gutters. Further out however the rocks become more hazardous.
