Rosedale Beach (NSW 547) fronts the small settlement of the same name. It is a curving 800 m long east-facing beach bordered by prominent craggy headlands and rock platforms. The beach begins in lee of the northern headland and sweeps to the east-southeast, curving round in lee of the southern bluffs. It has a central car park, next to a small lagoon, with access to the beach across the low dune. The northern corner is the most protected with rips usually absent and a number of boat sheds and small fishing boats backing the beach. The centre receives waves averaging 1.4 m and usually has an attached bar and 4-5 rips, with a rip sometimes forming against the southern rocks. Rocks also outcrop on the beach north of the lagoon, beyond which is a slightly lower energy section of beach.

Swimming

Rosedale is the readily accessible and most popular of the three but prone to rips especially through the middle section of the beach adjacent to the car park. Local beach goers usually prefer to swim at the more sheltered north-east corner (AKA "Boathsheds") or at the southern end. However swimmers should take caution to avoid rips on all sections of the beach as this is an unpatrolled beach.

Surfing

The northern side of the northern bay has a left called Yahoo that can hold a moderate to large swell. Rosedale is worth checking out for beach breaks, and with larger northeast swell produces a left running along the northern point.

Fishing

Rosedale is used as to store a few small dinghies on the beach for boat fishing, as well as offering flat rocks to either end, a central reef, and occasional beach gutters. There is no boat ramp, no jetty or moorings and no road access to the beach and consequently inaccessible to the public unless they arrive by boat. The southern rocks at Rosedale and all of Jimmies Beach fall inside the Sanctuary Zone of the Batemans Marine Park since July 2007. All fishing is prohibited except mainland rock/beach fishing since 12 March 2013 under an Amnesty (still no boats, diving, spearfishing, pots etc).
