Corambirra Point and its 400 m long breakwater forms the southern entrance. At the base of the 800 m long head is 150 m long Gallows beach (NSW 112), whose surf zone is a northern continuation of the neighbouring Boambee Beach. This beach has rocks at both ends and is sometimes eroded back to rocks exposing a cobble beach. The large car park for the Coffs Harbour boat ramp backs the beach providing good access. The Gallows surf break is located out on Corambirra Point.

Swimming

These are two rip-dominated hazardous beaches, use caution is swimming at either.

Surfing

The Gallows break is out on Corambirra Point, while Boambee has numerous beach breaks, with the northern end protected from northeasterlies. The southern creek mouth shoals and some reef can combine during large southeast swell to handle a big long right-hander called Trapdoors.

Fishing

A popular spot for 4WD beach fishers, with the Bream Hole against the northern rocks, numerous gutters along the beach, and the deep Boambee Creek at the southern end. The beach provides pippis and worms, while the surf is fished for tailor, bream, mulloway and whiting. Council permit required to drive on beach
