Beach NSW 453 is located towards the southern end of a 750 m long section of 15 m high rocky bluffs backed by the main Berrara settlement. The sandy high tide beach curves for 130 m below the bluffs and is fronted by continuous, though irregular intertidal rocks flats and extensive reefs, with a rip flowing out of a central channel in the rocks. A car park and playground are located on the bluffs overlooking the beach. It’s a nice spot to sit or play on but unsuitable for swimming owing to the rocks.

Swimming

Of the three Berrara beaches the best for swimming is the moderately sheltered northern beach. The small headland beach offers interesting walks and wading, while rips dominate the more open southern beach.

Surfing

The best surf is on the northern Conneeleys Reef off the lake mouth, with usually low waves on the northern beach, none at the headland beach, and beach breaks along the southern beach.

Fishing

The two lake mouths, central rocks and reefs and southern rip holes offer a variety of shore-based fishing.
