North Steyne (NSW 317b) occupies the centre of the beach, with the surf club protruding onto the beach in front of the walkway (Fig. 4.218b). A stormwater pipe cross the beach just north of the clubhouse.

Swimming

Rips dominate the entire beach so it is essential swimmers stay between the flags and avoid the rips, particularly at the northern end. A rock pool is located on the northern rock platform. Waves tend to be a little lower toward Manly, however rips and the efficient Escalator still persists even during lower waves. The rips and high level of beach usage, particularly by tourists, result in an average of 218 rescues each year.

Surfing

The wide lower gradient surf zone produces good beach breaks the length of the beach, with the best breaks being into the northern rip, and about 150 m south of the surfboat shed. Offshore the Queenscliff bombora only breaks when the surf is above 3 m. When the swell is up, Manly Point has a reasonable right.

Fishing

Some good gutters can usually be found along the beach, which when the crowds are low, are popular spots. The rocks round to Freshwater give good access to deep rocky water.
