Woonona Beach (NSW 367a) occupies the northern half of the beach. It has a rock pool on the rock platform, with a car park, park and picnic area on the bluff behind and the surf club located on the foredune just to the south. A beachfront oval and a road run for 500 m behind the northern section of the beach. The beach receives waves averaging 1-1.5 m and usually has an attached bar cut by rips every 200 m with a permanent rip against the northern rocks. During big seas a second bar forms further offshore.

Swimming

Stay in the two patrolled areas between the flags as rips extend along most of the beach.

Surfing

Woonona and Bellambi are popular summer beaches with the beach breaks providing lefts and rights along the beach.

Fishing

Wide flat rock platforms at either end are readily accessible and popular, with the northern Woonona offering the best gutter. Shifting gutters are best also along the Woonona end on the beach, while Bellambi is best when the creek is flowing.
