Beach

Aslings Beach (NSW 680) is the main beach and surf beach for Eden. The beach is 2.3 km long, faces east-southeast out the bay entrance and receives southerly waves averaging 1-1.5 m, with some protection from northeast and east waves. Most of the beach is backed by a 200 m wide sand barrier and 70 ha Curalo Lagoon (Fig. 4.429), which when open, flows across the northern end of the beach. A road, caravan park, foreshore park and southern cemetery are located on the sand barrier, with the town spread over the hills at the southern end of the beach. A surf club used to patrol the beach but is defunct, with lifeguards now patrolling the centre of the beach during the summer holidays. The beach is composed of medium to coarse sand which combines with the waves to produce a continuous bar cut by up to 20 rips during southeast waves. However during northeast and east waves calm conditions often prevail, though the rip holes may remain. A rock pool is located on the southern rocks.

Swimming

Aslings is Eden’s most popular beach and is patrolled in summer. However rips dominate so use care, and if unsure there is the rock pool at the southern end.

Surfing

Aslings usually has low to moderate beach breaks, with the northern end protected from summer north winds. During higher southeast swell a right develops off the rocks at the southern end.

Fishing

There are numerous rock fishing spots between Lennard Island, Worang Point and Aslings Beach. While some are relatively accessible, most require a long walk over other rugged rocks.

General

The northern corner of Twofold Bay consists of 3 km wide southeast-facing Calle Calle Bay, which is bordered by the northern Worang Point and Lookout Point at Eden. The bay has two rocky sides, linked by the longer sandy Aslings Beach, with the town of Eden located on the bluffs along the western shore of the bay.
