Bullimah Beach (NSW 291) is a west-facing 80 m long beach at the western tip of Gerrin Point. It can only be reached on foot from Maitland Bay or Putty Beach, or by boat. It is bordered by steep cliffs rising to 30 m, with the steep reflective beach backed by a small low foredune, then vegetated scree slope. Though the waves are invariably low or calm, it is little used and not recommended for swimming.
Maitland Bay usually has low surging wave running up the steep beach. Children should watch the surge and deep water close inshore. During big seas a heavy shorebreak develops.
Only a surging shore break, which gets heavier as the waves get bigger.
Not permitted in the marine park.
The 13 km long southern shore of Bouddi National Park is dominated by high sandstone cliffs and headlands that extends south from Second Point to Third Point, where the shore then trends west to Bouddi and Gerrin points, and finally Box Head, the northern headland of Broken Bay. Besides Little Beach, five headland-bound beaches (NSW 289-294) occupy this section of coast.Read less
