Anna Bay is a 2 km wide southeast-facing bay bordered by the rocky shores of Fingal Head to the north and Moana Point in the south. In between is a curving 2 km long section of sand containing two exposed beaches (NSW 231 & 232), most of which are located in Tomaree National Park. The northern Samurai beach (NSW 231) curves gently to the southwest for 1.1 km to Samurai Point, a small boundary headland. It is backed by active dunes rising to 30 m and extending 800 m inland (Fig. 4.136). The beach is accessible to 4WD and a popular spot for beach driving. It is also an official nude beach. The southern One Mile Beach (NSW 232), also known to surfers as Anna Bay, is 1.3 km long and curves round to face the east against the southern rocks. It also has dunes reaching 400 m inland at its northern end. At the southern end the dunes narrow and are backed by a caravan park, a shaded parking and picnic area and a kiosk. Wave height is low in the south averaging 0.5 m, but increases up the beach to 1.5 m along the central and northern half of One Mile and along Samurai. A single bar dominates One Mile with a strong permanent rip against the southern rocks, and 3-4 beach rips increasing in size up the beach. The more exposed Samurai has two bars, the inner usually cut by four rips, while the outer has 2-3 large rips, including a permanent rip against the northern headland.
