Swimming is not recommended at this section of the beach. This area is UNPATROLLED. The closest patrolled beaches are approx 400mtrs North at Towradgi Beach or 700mtrs South at Fairy Meadow Beach. Towradgi Beach (NSW 370) is a slightly curving 3.2 km long beach trending south of Towradgi Point to the low rocks on the south side of the small mouth of Fairy Creek (Fig. 4.295). The entire beach is backed by a low vegetated 200 m wide foredune series, which in turn is backed by low, now drained backbarrier swamp. This former swampy area prevented development near the beach, and today only the two surf clubs and their facilities impinge on the beach. Some of the northern foredune and southern drained area have been developed for playing fields. The channelised drain, called Towradgi Arm extends the full length of the beach and forms a small lagoon at the southern end, which breaks out against the southern rocks. The northern Towradgi Beach (NSW 370a) is patrolled by Towradgi SLSC (formed 1957), located on the foredune 350 m southwest of the point, with a commanding view down the beach. There is a large car park next to the surf club, and on the point it shares the rock pool with Corrimal. The beach is exposed to waves averaging 1.5 m which maintain usually well developed bars and rips (Fig. 4.296)
