South of the Glasshouse Rocks is a 2 km section of coast, backed by Bullengella and Nangudga lakes and fronted by two open beaches (NSW 603 & 604) and their low dunes. Centred between the two is a large caravan park which fronts the Princes Highway, while at the southern end a road runs out to the mouth of Nangudga Lake at Barunga Point. Bullengella Beach (NSW 603) is 650 m long and trends south of the Glasshouse Rocks to a low rocky platform that separates it from Handkerchief Beach. It is backed by a 100 m wide vegetated barrier, then the triangular shaped 12 ha Bullengella Lake, which breaks out across the southern end of the beach. The beach is well exposed to waves averaging 1.5 m, which maintain a permanent rip against the southern rocks and usually 1-2 shifting central rips.
Beach Length: 0.65km
