Nelson Bay beach (PS 13) commences on the eastern side of the marina wall and curves gently to the northeast for 550 m to the low rocky Fly Point. It consists of a narrow reflective beach backed by a narrow grassy reserve then Victoria Parade. A sign on Fly Point warns of strong tidal currents, otherwise waves are usually low along the beach.
