Ocean Beach (NSW 297a) commences at Wagstaff Point, sandy entrance to Brisbane Water, and trends west for 1.3 km. It is sheltered by Box Head and the tidal delta with usually low waves along the shore, and a reflective beach in lee of the shallow shoals. However waves breaking over the shoals can generate rip currents together with tidal currents flowing out of Brisbane Water. The Ocean Beach SLSC (formed in 1921) is located toward the eastern end of the beach where it is surrounded by a large car park.
