Corrigans Beach (NSW 533) commences at the eastern end of the main rock-training wall, with the beach having accumulated and built out up to 1 km into the bay since the construction of the wall in 1905. Today it curves to the south then east for 1.8 km to the lee of 20 m high Observation Head. It is backed by a large flat area of new land, which from the north is backed by foredune then a housing estate, park and playing fields, then the small Joes Creek in the centre. To the south is a caravan park, more parks and a southern caravan park, with a seawall also in the southern corner. The beach is sheltered from most swell with waves averaging about 0.5 m in the north which combine with the fine sand to maintain a low gradient, low tide terrace beach, grading to a reflective beach in the south as waves decreases. Shallow reefs extend seaward of the southern 400 m of beach.
