Smith Beach is a 1 km long, south-west facing beach that fronts the Smith Beach and Beachcomber Estates. Smith Beach Road runs to a large car park on the 20 m bluffs behind the centre of the beach. The beach receives wave averaging 1 m, which combine with the relatively fine sand to form a wide, low gradient beach, with a wide, shallow attached bar. Rips run out against the eastern reef and the western Smith Point.

Swimming

Moderately safe on the inner portion of the bar and clear of the rocks and rips. Stay in the patrolled area between the flags.

Surfing

The shallow bars produce a wide beach break more suitable for learners.

Fishing

The platforms and reefs at each end offer the best spots.

General

This beach offers a usually gentler surf with strong rips, more suited for families and younger surfers.
