One kilometre to the south is South Narrabeen SLSC (NSW 310c, formed in 1922), which fronts the busy Pittwater Road. It has a small car park and public amenities. Most swimmers tend to be locals, however the public will find it very accessible, patrolled and usually uncrowded.

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.
