Pacific Parade runs around the point and parallels the main 750 m long Currumbin beach (1595), providing good access to the length of the beach, with large car parks on the point and at Currumbin Surf Life Saving Club, located beside Elephant Rock. The club was founded in 1919, making it one of the oldest on the Gold Coast. A few houses and apartments line the west side of the road, below the 30 m high slopes of the point. The beach receives waves averaging 1.5 m which produce a 200 m wide double bar system. The inner bar is usually attached to the beach and is cut by four rips, including a permanent rip against Currumbin Rock. The deep trough runs out past Elephant Rock all the way to Currumbin Rock, with the outer bar further offshore.
