Cronulla Beach (NSW 335) is located at the southern more protected end of Bate Bay. It is bordered by 300 m of rocks to the north, which separate it from North Cronulla, and the beginning of the 10-20 m high rocky shore of the Cronulla Peninsula to the south. The curving 200 m long beach, faces east and receives waves lowered to about 1 m, which maintain a usually continuous attached bar, with rips more likely against the northern rocks. The beach is backed by a sloping grassy reserve, with the Cronulla SLSC (formed in 1907) located in the southern corner (Fig. 4.262). The backing area is densely developed, with the Cronulla train station just 300 m to the west. As a result this is a very popular beach.
