Beach

Sarina Beach (1141) lies between the rock flats and 35 m high Perpetua Point. The beach has a caravan park, two motels, a store and a number of holiday and residential houses, all contained in two streets backing the southern 500 m of the 1.3 km long beach. The beach faces due east and is bordered in the north by some low intertidal rocks that separate it from Campwin beach, while in the south are the rocks of 40 m high Perpetua Point. The Sarina Surf Life Saving Club, founded in 1968, is located at the far southern end of the beach and is the first building you see when arriving at the beach. A reserve and beachfront caravan park are located north of the club house. The beach has a high tide range, up to 8 m, and receives waves averaging between 0.5 and 1 m. These have built a narrow high tide beach, fronted by a 200 to 300 m wide, flat low tide beach (Fig. 4.66). A small creek crosses the centre of the beach, with the low rocks at the northern end.

Swimming

A relatively safe, patrolled beach when waves are less than 0.5 m. Be careful when waves exceed 0.5 m as they can produce rips, particularly at low tide. Campwin beach is patrolled occasionally with roving IRB patrols from Sarina SLSC.

Surfing

Usually a low, sloppy beach break, best at mid to low tide.

Fishing

Best off the southern head, as the beach can only be fished at high tide.

General

A popular spot with locals and holiday-makers, with all the facilities required for a day trip or a longer stay.
