Saltwater Creek Beach blocks the entrance to Saltwater Creek and its small meandering lagoon. Low bluffs and reef flats form the southern boundary, with a narrow, red, basalt dyke called Penguin on the northern border. Scattered holiday houses and car parks lie at each end of the 1 km long beach, with cleared farmland surrounding the central creek. Most of the beach is backed by a low, well-vegetated foredune. It receives low waves and has a relatively steep beach dropping into deep water, particularly at high tide. Reef flats only border the southern bluffs.

Swimming

One of the better bathing beaches along this section of coast, owing to the general absence of reef flats.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

There is deep water usually off the beach.

General

An attractive beach, dune and creek area mainly used by the surrounding holiday makers.
