Godfreys Beach (T 990) is a curving 1.1 km long east-facing beach, which is protected from the strong westerly winds. It receives easterly wind waves averaging 0.5-1 m, which combine with the 2-3 m tide range to produce a narrow high tide beach, which at low tide may be up to 100 m wide, with rips in the low tide surf zone. In addition there are prominent rocky headlands at each end and an extensive rock reef off the northern end of the beach. The beach is backed by a 200 m wide series of seven grassy foredune ridges, with the road running along the ridges, then a dredged 10 ha wetland in the centre (Fig. 4.215). There is a large car park, playground, amenities block and sailing club at the southern end.
