Kainga (S) beach (NSW 595) commences on the southern side of the low rocky point and trends almost due south for 550 m to a low rock outcrop. It has a reef located 150-250 m off the centre of the beach, with waves averaging 1.5 m to maintain a rip in lee of the reef and against the northern rocks. It is backed by a narrow foredune, a grassy reserve, and the main drive then the Kianga subdivision. A vehicle track runs out onto the low southern headland providing parking, views and a grassy area.
These are six rock- and rip-dominated beaches, all with strong permanent boundary rips, usually flowing out against jagged rock platforms and reefs, together with shifting beach rips. Use care if swimming at any of these beaches.
All six beaches offer readily accessible beach breaks with conditions depending on wave, wind and bar conditions.
There is good access to all these beaches and their rips and rock platforms.
The 7 km of coast between the towns of Dalmeny and the mouth of Wagonga Inlet at Narooma contain eight beaches (N SW 591-597), each separated by generally low rocky headlands composed of 450 million-year-old, tilted metamorphic rocks. The main Dalmeny Drive runs right behind the beaches providing excellent access. This section of coast has grown substantially since the 1970s, with Dalmeny-Kianga having a population of over 1800.Read less
