Bonny Hills is located on the sloping sedimentary rocks of Grants Head, which rise to 60 m at the water tower. The rocky shore begins immediately south of the surf club reserve and continues south around Grants Head for 2 km. Located on the northern side of the head are two small, beaches (NSW 175 & 176).Sponys Bay beach (NSW 176) extends to the base of the slopes just south of the surf club. It is a 200 m long sand beach located below 15 m high vegetated bluffs. It is fronted by near continuous intertidal rock platforms, with a sandy gap at the mouth of Greenhills Gully at the southern end used to launch boats across the beach. A caravan park is located on the bluffs. Waves break over the rocks with usually low waves at the shore.

Swimming

Only Bartletts is suitable for swimming, however stay on the bar and away from the rips and rocks.

Surfing

There is a reasonable left-hander off the northern point under northeast and east swell with beach and outer bar breaks at other times.

Fishing

Low rocks and shallow gutters dominate both beaches, with boat launching across Sponys beach.
