Bellambi Point is a dune-capped shale point, which extends 600 m seaward as Bellambi Reef. Either side of the point are two rock and reef-dominated beaches (NSW 368N & 368). The northern Bellambi Harbour beach (NSW 368N) is a narrow 400 m long strip of high tide sand fronted by 50 m wide rock flats grading into reefs which extend 200 m offshore. It faces northeast and is sheltered by the point and reefs, as well as by an attached breakwater, which shelters a large boat ramp and car park at the eastern end. It is backed by an access road, parks and the Bellambi sewer works.Bellambi Point beach (NSW 368) commences at the tip of the point and trends southwest for 900 m; the first 400 m in lee of shallow reefs, with a southern 400 m long section open to the sea and linking to a salient in lee of a low reef called Sandspit Point. The beach is backed by a Bellambi sewer works and an outlet pipe crosses the northern end of the beach, with a vegetated dune to the south. While the rocks and reefs lower waves to less than 1 m at the reflective beach, the numerous rocks in the surf, combined with the sewer make this beach unsuitable for swimming.

Surfing

During bigger east and southeast swell a right breaks over the reef off Bellambi Point, while Bellambi Bombora just north of southern rocks works in bigger south swell.

Fishing

Good boat ramp in the harbour, with the breakwater a popular spot along with the rocks round the point.
