Bateau Bay lies 500 m south of Blue Lagoon and is surrounded by the southern section of Wyrrabalong National Park. The curving 200 m long beach (NSW 282) faces southeast, but is protected from waves and wind by two prominent headlands and extensive rock platforms and reefs (Fig. 4.168). These completely encircle the small bay, resulting in low waves and a steep reflective beach. The beach is backed by densely vegetated bluffs rising to 20 m then the suburbs of Bateau Bay. The boundary of Wyrrabalong National Park cross the middle of the beach and backing bluffs and includes 4 km of rocky coast to the south. Access is available from a car park on the rear bluffs, providing a short steep walk to the beach.
