The 400 m long North Cronulla section of beach (NSW 334d) is patrolled by North Cronulla SLSC (Fig. 4.261). All three clubs patrol one of Sydney’s more hazardous beaches. Not only are rips present every 200 m, but the bars that separate them are usually detached from the shore, with an often deep trough running between the bar and the shore. This combines with a relatively steep beach face and at times heavy to surging shorebreak to produce a potentially hazardous beach, particularly given the big summer crowds. During and following big seas a second bar forms further offshore with more widely spaced rips, and a continuous trough runs between the beach and the first bar.
Beach Length: 0.3km
General Hazard Rating: 7/11
