Mystery Bay lies on the north side of Cape Dromedary, and receives protection from the cape and numerous rocks and reefs that lie off the jagged rocky shoreline (Fig. 4.402). The bay is 500 m across and contains a curving, crenulate 800 m long sand, gravel and cobble beach (NSW 611) that winds along the inside of the northeast-facing bay. Waves are usually low at the beach, averaging less than 0.5 m, with the beach narrow, steep and reflective, with shallow rocks and reefs off the beach. The Mystery Bay road terminates at the back of the beach where there is a car park and boat ramp. A camping area is located on the backing northern bluffs, while the small Mystery Bay settlement is on the southern bluffs.
