One kilometre to the south is the more embayed Baringura or Little Bondi beach (NT 1041), a 200 m long white sand beach, bordered by 10-20 m high red laterite cliffs, extending 200-300 m off the beach. These reduce waves to just under 1 m and maintain a low tide bar, with rips usually against the points. There is a small foredune and both active and older dune transgression extending up to 200 m in lee of the beach (Fig. 5.119), with informal camping in the deflation hollow. This is a relatively popular surfing beach, and at times the entire Gove surf life saving patrol moves to the beach, so people can enjoy the surf in greater safety.
