Blue Bay (NSW 277), so named because this relatively small-protected bay usually has calm blue water rather than breaking surf. The semi-circular 250 m long beach faces east out the entrance, with a low headland and rock platform to the north, and the sand forming a spit in the south, in lee of shallow reef. The narrow entrance and reefs lower waves to usually less than 0.5 m producing a steep reflective beach. The beach is backed by residential housing and only street parking is provided.

Swimming

These are three moderately sheltered beaches receiving usually low waves, with surf club monitoring all three.

Surfing

When the waves exceed 2 m when the Blue Bay reefs start working, while in Toowoon Bay the northern and southern reefs providing rideable waves up to 2 m.

Fishing

The bays attract bream and whiting, while the rocks are fished for luderick, blackfish and mulloway.

General

Rocky shore extends 500 m south of The Entrance to the mouth of a 700 m wide rocky embayment containing two curving beaches (NSW 277 & 278), with a third bay containing NSW 279.
