Blenheim Bay (NSW 429) is located 100 m to the south and is a 200 m long pocket beach, surrounded by densely wooded slopes, with a car park and picnic area situated on the northern headland, providing a view of the beach. The beach receives low swell and is usually reflective, with rips only forming during periods of high waves.

Swimming

Usually three low energy reflective beaches with surging waves. However rips do form during periods of higher swell.

Surfing

Only during big swell when the shorebreak increases in size.

Fishing

The rocks are best for fishing onto the shallow rocks and sand.
