Currumbin beach is a 750 m long, north-east facing beach that extends from 10 m high Currumbin Rock down to 15 m high, humpy Elephant Rock (Fig. 4.159). Currumbin Creek flows out on the north side of the point and, to contain the inlet and shifting tidal shoals, both sides of the creek have been stabilised by the construction of rock groynes. The groyne in front of Currumbin Point extends 300 m from the road in front of the point out to Currumbin Rock. The groyne and point have partly stabilised a 300 m long, low energy beach and low sand spit (1594). This is a popular and very accessible beach, with calm conditions in the inlet and low waves toward the point, however it is fronted by the deep, shifting tidal shoals and channel, together with strong tidal currents.
