The southern Collaroy Beach (NSW 310d) faces east-northeast and is sheltered from the southerlies, while exposed to summer northeasterlies, with waves usually less than 1 m (Fig. 4.208). It is a popular beach, located on the main Pittwater Road and next to the Collaroy shops. The Collaroy SLSC (founded in 1911 when two groups of campers called 'The Wombats' and 'The Crows' combined forces to form the club) is surrounded by a large park and car park, with a popular rock pool on the southern rocks. The beach offers a usually lower surf. However summer northeast winds and waves can create strong rips, and big seas bring in the seaweed.

Swimming

Narrabeen ranges from the more hazardous rip-dominated North Narrabeen to the usually lower waves of Collaroy. However summer northerly seas do induce strong rips at Collaroy. Best is between the flags at the four surf clubs.

Surfing

Narrabeen is best known for the world famous North Narrabeen break, breeding ground of some of the world's best surfers, including world champions. It is also the site of numerous local, national and international events. North Narrabeen has five waves. A heavy but short left breaking over a ledge on the Point; the Alley rights; the longer North Narra left. The famous long lefts are best in moderate to high northeast swell. In front of the car park is the Carie rights, a fast tubing wave, while further out in bigger south swell is the Narrabeen bombie, which offers both lefts and is now a tow-in site. Beach breaks abound down the beach, with the central Gardens area the most popular, while at Collaroy the smaller waves attract the learners and inexperienced. However during big south-east swell Collaroy Point starts to work with an inside section off the pool called The Kick, and a fuller section off the point.

Fishing

A very popular beach with rock, inlet and beach fishing at North Narrabeen, and gutters down the beach following high seas. Boats launched at Fishermans beach are also commonly seen on the inshore reefs.
