On the south side of the rocks is the first southern beach (739). It is 1km long, faces east and has finer sand than the main beach. The sand and slightly lower waves produce a lower, wider beach. There are also low rocks bordering each end and in the centre of the beach. The road runs behind the beach, with a few houses scattered along the foreshore.
All three beaches are used by the locals for swimming and fishing. The main beach has deep water off the beach at high tide and surf at mid to low tide, while the two southern beaches have lower surf breaking across the low beach and bar.
Waves up to 1 m high break across the bars during the Trades.
Best at high tide and off the many rocks that border these beaches.
Three relatively natural tropical beaches that provide beachfront living and surf for the Yarrabah community.
