Pallarenda Beach and Rowes Bay are essentially one long beach cut in the middle by Three Mile Creek. Both beaches are backed by a 1 to 2 km wide, low, coastal plain. Pallarenda Beach (859) is 2.5 km long, faces east and receives low waves usually less than 0.3 m. These maintain a low, 50 m wide high tide beach fronted by 100 to 200 m wide intertidal sand flats. The northern end of the beach lies in the Environmental Park and has a number of facilities and picnic areas. Just south of the park entrance is a concrete boat ramp and a swimming enclosure, backed by the small Pallarenda residential settlement. The Cape Pallarenda Road runs right behind the beach, providing good access for the entire length, with a grassy foreshore reserve between the road and the beach.
