Charlesworth Bay has a relatively protected north east facing beach, just 500 m in length. The Bay is protected from the south by 40 m high Diggers Head with smaller Fowlers Head to the north. This secluded bay and its backing valley are now largely occupied by Pacific Bay Resort. A road runs to the southern end of the beach where an old boat shed now shares the beach with international tourists. Between the resort and the beach was a small lagoon with its shallow creek crossing the southern end of the beach, however this has since been diverted and the lagoon made into a centre piece of the resort. The upper beach consists of coarse sand and pebbles and forms a steep beach face, while at low tide a wider bar is exposed. Waves are usually less than 0.5 m high.
Beach Length: 0.5km
General Hazard Rating: 4/10
