Boat Harbour (NSW 333) is a curving 150 m long, south-facing, beach formed behind a 50 m wide break in the 10-15 m high sandstone rocks on the southwestern tip of the Kurnell Peninsula. It can only be reached by 4WD, boat or on foot. The narrow entrance lowers waves to less than 1 m at the beach, maintaining a steep reflective beach, bordered by rock platforms. Fishers have long used this as a site for storing and launching their small boats and their shacks and boats still dominate the beach.
Usually a low surging swell, but little used for swimming owing to its relative remoteness.
None in the Harbour, however at Doughboy Head, a few hundred metre to the east is a shallow reef break called Voodoo, which has a heavy left. To the west of the harbour the rocks extend seaward as the Merries Reef which offers a few small reef breaks.
Mainly used for storing and launching small fishing boats, however the rocks to either side are also popular.Read less
