Bingie Beach (NSW 579) commences on the southern side of the point and trends to the south-southwest for 4.3 km (Fig. 4.391) to the usually blocked mouth of Coila Lake, at Tuross Head. It is backed by a continuous 200 m wide barrier, with several active blowouts along the northern 2 km, with a creek behind. The beach is accessible on foot from the Bingie Point car park and off the road leading south of the point to the Tuross sewerage treatment works. In the south it can be reached across the usually blocked mouth via Tuross Head with a car park and picnic area on the south side of the Coila Bar. This is an exposed relatively steep beach with waves averaging 1.5 m, which maintain a continuous bar cut by rips every few hundred metres, with up to 15 rips along the beach, including permanent rips against the northern rocks and off the Coila Bar. The rips are often linked by a longshore trough.
