Fairy Meadow Beach and SLSC (founded 1951) is located 1.3 km to the south (NSW 370b), with access via a road across the former swamp. A car park and dressing sheds are provided immediately behind the dune. Midway between the two surf clubs is a large caravan park with foot access across the creek and dunes to the beach. The 1.5 km of beach south of the Fairy Meadow surf club is only accessible on foot from the surf club or from the southern end. The beach receives waves averaging 1.5 m in the north-centre, decreasing to 1 m toward the south, which results in a single bar cut by rips every 200 m, with up to 14 rips along the beach. Rip size and intensity usually decreases down the beach. The intervening bar is attached during periods of lower waves, particularly to the south, while higher waves will produce a continuous trough occupied by rip feeder currents, and occasionally a second outer bar along the northern half of the beach.
Beach Length: 2km
General Hazard Rating: 6/11
