Guerilla Bay is a 500 m wide east-facing bay, bordered to the south by Burrewarra Point. It contains two beaches (Fig. 4.380); the northern beach (NSW 551) is located hard against the northern bluffs that rise to 30 m. It can be accessed via a winding road off the main road, which leads to a small car park behind the beach. The beach consists of a 100 m long patch of sand that forms a salient, tying it to a 200 m long rocky islet, with small rocky bays to either side of the salient. The northern little bay has a 20 m wide gap between the point and islet, resulting in usually very low wave to calm conditions. While this is an unsuitable swimming location it is popular with SCUBA divers who swim out though the gap into the deep water. A 200 m long rock platform separates it from the main beach (NSW 552), which curves to the southeast for 250 m to the base of Burrewarra Point. Waves average about 0.5 m and maintain a usually steep beach face fronted by a narrow attached bar. It is free of rips except during higher seas when one flows out against the northern rocks. It is backed by some vegetated bluffs, a few house in the south, with a usually blocked creek in the centre and small car park on its southern side.
Nuns is popular with sunbathers but prone to rips. The rocky Blacks is unsuitable for swimming, while the usually quiet main Guerilla Bay beach offers the best location.
No recognised spots.
There are rock platforms and gullies associated with all the beaches, while the only good rip gutter is on Nuns.Read less
