Beach NSW 351 is located directly east of the Lawrence Hargraves Lookout and more than 200 m below. It is a small 50 m long patch of sand occupying a natural 90 m wide amphitheatre in the sheer cliff face. It can only be reached around the steep rocks from Stanwell Park. It is fronted by a rock strewn surf and drained by a strong permanent rip, and is not recommended for anything.

Swimming

These are three isolated rip and rock dominated beaches unsuitable for swimming.

Surfing

The reefs at each end of Bulgo produce a left which is best with northeast swell, and a short right in the south which works in southeast swell.

Fishing

If you make the steep long walk, you will find good gutters at Hell Hole and Bulgo.
