Jibbon Beach (NSW 339) lies 500 m inside Port Hacking Point the southern entrance to the port. The beach is 700 m long and curves to the east to finally face northwest in its eastern corner (Fig. 4.266). Waves average 0.5 m at the western end where they and surge up a steep, cusped reflective beach, decreasing in height to the east. This is a protected north-facing beach and is the southernmost location on the east coast of the tropical beach sand creeper Ipomoea, a leafy vine with a brilliant purple flower, attesting to its sheltered sun-drenched location. The beach is backed by a low well-vegetated single foredune, then Jibbon Lagoon. It can be accessed via Bundeena, with limited street parking at the western end. During summer and on weekends many people come by boat and anchor off the more sheltered eastern end the beach.
Usually a relatively quiet beach with no rips, particularly toward the eastern corner. However the water is deep inshore, hence good for boats. Surging waves can cause problems for young children.
The beach is protected during southerly conditions, while the rocks at each end offer relative safe spots to reach deeper water.Read less
