Stinky Bay (93) is a curving 2 km long low gradient beach lying between Lurline Point and the southern headland of Nora Creina. The name no doubt derives from the large rotting piles of seagrass that commonly cover the northern end of the beach. Wave height decreases from about 1.5 m down to less than 0.5 m at the western end resulting in rips decreasing is size, and a continuous low tide terrace in along the northern kilometre. This beach is backed by the Sunland resort, which has a 500 m long walking track through to the beach, just north of Lurline Point.
