The southern Valla Beach (NSW 122) is a popular beach located on the south side of Valla Headland with a park and picnic facilities on the backing slopes. It is, however also a potentially dangerous beach owing to its exposed southeast-facing location and the mouth of Deep Creek which flows out against the southern end of the 650 m long beach. A council sign at the beach warns swimmers of these hazards, which is patrolled by lifeguards during the Christmas school holidays.
