On the south side of Bawley Point are two adjoining beaches separated by Jurwin Head (Fig. 4.360). To the north is 300 m long Cormorant Beach (NSW 487) which is relatively straight and faces due east between the sloping rocks of Bawley and Jurwin points. Houses back both sides with a foredune then 12 ha wetland behind the centre, which is drained by a small creek against the northern rocks. The beach receives waves averaging about 1 m, which usually maintain a continuous low tide terrace. Rips form against the northern rocks, then down the beach during higher waves. It can be accessed from a small park besides the creek and via a public walkway between the houses in the south.
When waves exceed 1 m watch for the boundary rips.
Usually low to moderate beach breaks, plus reef-point breaks on the points either end of Gannet Beach.
Both beaches have sloping rocks at each end fronted by permanent rip gutters. During low waves small boats are launched from the southern end of Gannet.Read less
