Robinson Beach is located 2 km south of the entrance to Mourilyan Harbour. It consists of two pockets of sand wedged in at the based of 100 m high Esmeralda Hill, to the south of Hayter Point. Dense tropical vegetation extends right to the back of the beaches, and the main northern beach is backed by the narrow Seaforth valley that links it with Mourilyan Harbour. There is no development on either beach and no vehicle access.The main beach (769) is 500 m long, faces east and receives waves averaging 0.5 m that surge up a moderately steep and narrow beach at high tide, while at low tide they break across an 80 m wide low tide bar. The beach is bordered by rock-strewn headlands, with a substantial rock field in the middle of the beach, as well as some rocks scattered across the bar. The presence of the rocks plus the occurrence of rips against the rocks induce additional hazards on this otherwise attractive beach.
These beaches are only suitable under calm conditions, when there is good diving around the rocks. Any waves produce both hazardous turbulence around the rocks and rock-controlled rips.
Only on the northern beach away from the rocks, when waves exceed 0.5m.
There are excellent locations off the numerous rocks and reefs on both beaches.
Two small, natural, tropical beaches. Best to visit in calm conditions, owing to the presence of rocks on and off the beaches.Read less
