Waterloo Beach (T 196) is located between the southern side of Swansea jetty and Waterloo Point. It is a 300 m long, low energy north-facing beach. The beach is well protected by the point and is narrow, often calm with seagrass commonly covering the beach. Sand and some rock flats widen into the southern corner, with higher waves breaking along the edge of the flats to provide a right-hand surf break. A second break runs along the edge of the rocky point. The jetty car park backs the northern end, with a low grassy reserve behind the beach, which is backed by sloping bluffs and the main street of Swansea, while Swansea golf course occupies the point.
