Rocky Beach (NSW 163) commences 500 m to the south and is a 400 m long beach composed of coarse sand and pebbles with rocks dotted throughout the beach and surf. Whilst the main road runs on the 30-40 m high bluffs behind the beach the only access is via a steep walking track off the Flynns Beach road at the southern end. This little used beach is suitable for a walk but not for swimming. Its exposed location, four permanent rips against the headlands and rocks and its isolated setting make this a hazardous beach.

Swimming

Rips and rocks dominate both beaches

Surfing

There are rideable waves if you don't mind all the rocks.

Fishing

Sand gutters are always present amongst the beach rocks, and off the headlands.
