Beach 750 is located 2 km northwest of Point Boston, and faces south into the protected section of the bay. It does receive some swell between Boston Island and the point, however low winds waves tend to dominate the shore. The beach is 1.2 km long, bordered by sloping granite bluffs, with some rocks outcropping in the centre, to which there is 4WD access. It has a low gradient beach and 100 m wide sand flats (Fig. 4.122).

Swimming

North Shields is the best location, with high tide offering more water over the low gradient sand flats.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

Best off the North Shields jetty and some of the rock outcrops below the highway.

General

A relatively protected, southerly facing section of shore dominated by the highway in the west and the curving North Shields beach in the north.
