Pacific-North Palm Beach Surf Life Saving Club (1593B) is located 1.2 km south of Tallebudgera, toward the centre of the beach. The club was established in 1947 and sits just off the highway on a beachfront building block. It has a small car park, with a seawall fronting the club house.

Swimming

This is a potentially hazardous beach owing to the inner bar rips and is particularly hazardous near any of the rock groynes. Do not swim at the creek mouths, as they have deep tidal channels with strong currents. The safest swimming is in the three patrolled areas, with Tallebudgera providing the best access.

Surfing

There are beach breaks along the length of the beach, both on the inner bar during low waves and on the outer bar during moderate swell.

Fishing

The beach usually provides several rip holes, together with the four groynes and two creeks.

General

Heavy development along this beach tends to restrict access and parking, while the seawall, when exposed, also restricts access to the beach and even the size of the beach, particularly at high tide.
