The small holiday and fishing village of Bendalong is situated in the lee of Red Head Point and faces north into a protected embayment called Boat Harbour. It was originally used for loading timber and the remains of a small rock jetty are still present. Within the bay are three beaches (NSW 458-460). All have road access along their entire length with a boat-launching ramp at the eastern end of Boat Harbour, and a shady caravan and camping area on the point. The northernmost Dee Beach (NSW 458) is a 130 m long pocket of sand immediately south of Flat Rock and wedged between two small wooded 20 m high headlands. It shares the northern car park with Flat Rock and a southern car park with Washerwoman Beach. The beach receives some protection from Red Head 2 m to the southeast, with waves averaging about 1 m, which maintain a shallow bar with a rip flowing out against the southern rocks.

Swimming

Dee is rip-dominated, while Washerwoman and Boat Harbour are relatively sheltered.

Fishing

Best shore fishing is off the wide, flat northern rocks, with outside fishermen using the Boat Harbour ramp.
