Blueys Beach (NSW 209) is almost a duplication of its northern neighbour Boomerang. It trends southwest for 900 m between Boomerang Point and Blueys Head, the latter is backed by steep vegetated slopes rising to a 216 m high hill. The beach is backed by a high foredune occupied by beachfront houses and backed by the narrow settlement of Blueys Beach. Car parking is available in the north, centre and south, with the southern end also offering a small reserve and best access to the beach, along with a small creek that runs through the reserve and across the beach. Waves averaging 1.6 m interact with the medium beach sand to maintain a single usually detached bar cut by 3-4 beach rips and strong permanent rips against each headland (Fig. 4.119).

Swimming

These are two exposed unpatrolled rip-dominated beaches. Use caution if swimming, particularly if waves are breaking.

Surfing

Both beaches pick up all south swell and offer good beach breaks, with some protection from summer northeasterlies. On Boomerang, the northern break next to Charlotte Head is best during northeast winds which blow offshore and hold up to 2 m, while the south break which incorporates a reef bottom, works best in west to south winds.

Fishing

Good rip gutters are usually present on both beaches.
