Rheban Beach (T 276) is a curving, then convex 3.5 km long sandy beach. It commences at the base of the gently sloping farmland adjacent to Rheban farm and trends to the southeast, before curving round at Sandspit Point and trending south to terminate at the dynamic mouth of Earlham Lagoon (Fig. 4.45). Sand has been moving onto and along the beach for several thousand years slowly building out the barrier-spit system, which is largely in a natural state. The beach receives lower refracted waves, which maintain a reflective to low tide terrace system, with rips usually absent. It is backed by the foredune ridges, which widen from 300 m in the north to 700 m at the point, then the shallow lagoon. There is public access at the northern end of the beach adjacent to the farm.

Surfing

Depending on the shape of the lagoon mouth shoals the point can produce an excellent long right-hand wave running across the lagoon mouth shoals and along the point. Best access is along the beach, with permission, from Rheban farm.
