Fraser Beach (NSW 265) is a popular 400 m long sandy beach that occupies a valley drained by Bongon Creek and Lagoon, the creek breaking out across the southern end of the beach. The beach faces the east-southeast and picks up most east and southerly, which maintain an attached bar cut by permanent rips against each headland and one or two central rips.
A popular but none the less, relatively hazardous location owing to the persistent rips. If swimming be careful, stay between the flags when patrolled and clear of the rip holes and feeder currents.
Fraser is a popular surfing beach with usually a reasonable beach break and afforded some protection from summer northeasterlies.
The rocks around Snapper Point have good access and are popular, however they are also dangerous, and fishermen have been swept off leading to a number of drownings. Use extreme caution if rock fishing here.
Bongon and Frazer beaches occupy the same small embayment between northern Snapper Point and southern Little Bumpy (Fig. 4.154). Both are within Munmorah State Conservation Area with vehicle access to Frazer Beach, where a picnic and camping area are provided. Bongon is a short walk around the rocks from Frazer or down the slope from the Frazer Blowhole car park.Read less
