Oaks Beach (1498) is the surfing beach for Burnett Heads. It is located 2 km south of South Head. The beach is a 200 m long, north-east facing pocket of sand wedged in between basalt rocks and boulders to the north, and a groyne that was built by moving basalt boulders off the beach to both trap beach sand and help clear the beach (Fig. 4.89). The beach is backed by a low, narrow dune, with seawalls at each end and a road right behind the dune. There is a small park at the southern end, with parking restricted to the road. The beach receives waves averaging between 0.5 and 1 m which have built a narrow high tide beach fronted by a 50 to 100 m wide low tide bar. When waves exceed 0.5 m, rip currents form against the rocks at each end.
