The Hastings Point beach (NSW 7) is located on the southern side of the Cudgera Creek mouth, which flows out against the low Hastings Point. The curving 600 m long beach commences at the road bridge and trends initially south. It then curves to the east in lee of Hastings Point, to face north across the shallow sand and rocky inlet (Fig. 4.11). It is an attractive spot with a grassy park behind which is good parking right on Hastings Point, and protection from southerly winds and most waves. It is popular with swimmers, families and fishers, but beware of the deep tidal channel and strong currents that reverse with the tides. The park behind the inlet is available for camping on long weekends and school holiday periods.

Surfing

None in the inlet, however surfers drive to the car park on the crest of point to check the waves and Cudgera Beach.

Fishing

This is a popular fishing location with good parking and access to the creek and point. Flat Rock on the north side of the point and Snapper Rock below the southern car park are fished for tailor and snapper
