Nobbys Beach (NSW 165) extends for 400 m between the southern rocks of Flynns Beach and the conical 30 m high Nobby Head. Waves refracting round the head and adjacent Flat Rock reef result in a partly sheltered northeast-facing beach, with waves averaging about 1 m. These maintain a usually attached bar, however rocks and reefs dominate the surf zone and when waves exceed 1 m rips form against the rocks, with larger waves breaking well offshore on the reefs. The beach is accessible around the rocks from Flynns or via a narrow dirt track and small car park at the southern end behind Nobby Head.

Swimming

Three rock- and rip-dominated beaches, with waves lowest at the southern end of Shelly.

Surfing

Rocks dominate the surf making this a difficult spot to surf.

Fishing

A mixture of beach and rock fishing, with numerous gutters in the sand and against the rocks.
