Patrolled from 8:30am to 11:30am and also 3pm to 6pm on Sundays during June-September. Casuarina Beach (NT 146) is the site of the Darwin Surf Life Saving Club, and is part of the Casuarina Coastal Reserve, a 1180 ha reserve which encompasses the entire 4.5 km long beach as well as Lee Point. The 5 km long reserve offers a wide range of recreation facilities, as well as a section for nude bathing. The continuous sand beach begins on the eastern side of the Dripstone Cliffs and consists of a wide high tide beach, fronted by 200-300 m wide intertidal sand flats containing two low ridges and runnels (Fig. 5.23). The beach terminates at rock flats that lie off sandy Lee Point. The surf club is located toward the southern end of the beach and is surrounded by the grassy reserve.
