Number One beach (NSW 216) is located besides the steep incline as you drive into Seal Rocks, with the narrow road wedged in between the beach and the hill. The beach is 1.3 km long and curves round to face the northeast against the southern rocks At the southern end it opens up with a backing valley occupied by the Seal Rocks camping reserve, and a beachfront car park at the southern end in behind the rocks. East of the car park is a detached point, locally called Seal Rocks Point, around which the waves wrap, and where during larger east and southeast swell a reasonable, though full point break is produced. The beach receives considerable protection from the point and waves average 1 m. The waves usually increase up the beach and can produce one or two rips particularly during and following high waves.
The southern corner of Number One in front of the car park is best with usually a wide low bar and no rips. Be careful up the beach as the surf widens and rips can develop. Boat Beach usually has low waves and a reflective beach.
The point, known as Seal Rocks, is a popular spot during higher east and southeast waves when easy access and a fullish wave make it relatively easy to surf.
A few gutters can occur up Number One beach, however the rocks at the south end are the most popular spot, while Boat Beach is used by professional fishers with their boats based here.Read less
