Somerset Beach (T 1080) commences at the foreland and trends straight east then east-southeast for a total of 1.5 km finally curving south into the 50 m wide sandy mouth of the Cam River. The beach is narrow at high tide with a sandy low gradient mid tide, grading at low tide into two sandy channels bordered by intertidal rock flats. Waves depend on wind conditions, with low wave to calm conditions during westerlies, but higher waves during onshore and easterly conditions. The entire beach is backed by a coastal reserve, with sporting facilities located at the wider western end, then Somerset road and township. The Somerset Surf Life Saving Club is located towards the east end of the beach where sand delivered by the river spreads out over the rock flats and forms a low tide ridge (Fig. 4.233). The Anzac Park picnic area is located across the road from the surf club.
