Binalong Bay beach (T 89) is 1.6 km long, faces northeast, with most winds blowing offshore and waves averaging about 1 m. The waves interact with the medium white sand to produce a moderately steep beach, usually fronted by a continuous narrow bar, with a few rips cutting across the bar during periods of higher waves. It is backed by a low vegetated foredune and the lagoon, with the usually blocked lagoon mouth backing the southern end of the beach (Fig. 4.17). There is vehicle access and a few houses located behind the northern end of the beach. In the south there is pedestrian access to the beach via a footbridge at the southern picnic area on the shore of Grants Lagoon, with a second picnic area on the rocks immediately east of the beach.
Binalong Bay is a relatively safe beach under normal lower wave conditions. When waves are breaking across the bar, rips are usually present and care should be taken. There are some large rock pools, including beach T 90, on the point, which are an attractive and relatively safe location during calm seas.
Usually a low shorebreak, with bigger swell required to produce rideable beach breaks.Read less
