Errington Hole beach (103) is a 600 m long sandy beach that curves north of Errington Hole, to a small reef controlled cuspate foreland. Waves average 1 to 1.5 m and maintain a continuous bar, usually cut by two beach rips, with permanent rips against the boundary rocks. The 4WD track runs along the beach. On the north side of the sandy foreland, the southern Little Dip beach (104) continues for 500 m in two arcurate sweeps to the 20 m high bluffs of Little Dip. This beach is more protected by reefs and waves average about 0.5 m, which maintain a steep, barless beach, usually free of surf and rips. Active dunes extend up to 1.5 km in from the beaches.
Be careful on all these beaches. The beaches fronted by rocks and reef flats, while usually sheltered, are unsuitable for swimming owing to the shallow, rocky water. The more open beaches usually have a lowered surf, with beach 104 being the safest and most free of inshore reef. Watch for rips, rocks and reef on all beaches.
The best chances are the beach breaks on beaches 103 and 109.
The coast abounds in beach, rock and reef holes, which can be easily accessed from the beaches and platforms.
This section is for the more experienced off-road drivers, and also someone who knows the local tracks, which can be hard to follow as well as potentially boggy.Read less
