Norries Head and beach (NSW 5) is an attractive location immediately south of Cabarita (Fig. 4.10). The 200 m long beach is tucked in between Norries Head and the rocks and bluff that separate it from Cabarita Beach. An elongate clifftop car park provides a good view and access via a wooden walkway to the beach and head, which can also be reached via a walkway from Cabarita. This is an unusual beach in that it varies tremendously in size and shape depending on the pulses of sand (sand waves) moving around Norries Head. At its best it consists of a wide shallow sand bar, which produces a great right hand surf break.
