On the south side of Conjurong Point is a low sand spit that runs from Green Island to the entrance to Lake Conjola. Its beach can be accessed on foot from Manyana or from two cliff top car parks on the Point. Depending on the Lake entrance conditions the beach can vary in size, reaching a maximum length of 700 m. It faces the south west, receiving protection from east and north east waves but is open to south swell. The surf zone is also highly variable, and usually cut by 1 or 2 rips. When the Lake is open, a deep inlet, together with beach rips and rocks, produces hazardous bathing conditions.
A potentially hazardous beach when swell is from the south and the Lake open as both produce rips and currents. Best to bathe on the calmer north side of the spit.
The beach and sand bars off the Lake mouth produce beach breaks in south swell, however it is Green Island itself that produces one of the best lefts on the coast. Most larger swell wraps around the island to break over a rocky reef, while north to north west winds blow offshore.
Both Green Island and the Lake entrance are popular spots. However be wary if boating across the bar as there have been numerous accidents and some fatalities.
An interesting beach in that it can provide access to Green Island and the Lake mouth, both of which make it popular with surfers and fishermen, not the safest however for bathing with strong currents and deep channels usually present.Read less
