Easts Beach (NSW 396) is the southernmost of Kiama’s pocket beaches. It is named after the caravan park that occupies the whole valley behind the beach and spreads up the southern slopes, with vehicle access being only for campers through the caravan park, making this look like a private beach. The beach is however, like all Australian beaches public property, open to all and is patrolled by lifeguards during the Christmas school holidays. The beach is 350 m long and faces east between 50 m high Marsden Head and a southern head. Waves average about 1 m at the shore, and maintain a usually attached bar with no rips under normal wave conditions (Fig. 4.322). However rips do form during higher waves. Munnora Creek and its small lagoon cross the southern end of the beach.

Swimming

Surf Beach is the most hazardous with permanent rips, while Kendalls and East offer usually quieter conditions free of rips. All three are patrolled, so stay between the flags.

Surfing

Surf Beach offers the only regular surf, which is best under low to moderate waves, with big waves closing out across the bay. During moderate east to northeast swell a left called The Wedge runs along the rocks on the south side of Blow Hole Point.

Fishing

There are always gutters of Surf Beach and abundant rocks around the foreshore. However beware as the rocks are steep and wash washed.
