Fiddamans Beach (NSW 94) extends for 1 km between the bluff and the smaller Diggers Point. It faces southeast resulting in a higher energy, double bar rip-dominated beach (Fig. 4.49). The inner bar is usually cut by five rips with permanent rips against each headland, and more widely spaced rips on the outer bar. The beach is backed by vegetated dunes extending a few hundred metre behind the northern end. Access to the beach is limited to the walk from Sandys Beach in the north and a track via Digger Point in the south. Consequently this energetic and potentially hazardous beach receives few users other than occasional surfers and fishers.
