The main Saltwater Creek beach (NSW 708) extends for 420 m from the usually blocked mouth of Saltwater Creek to the usually blocked mouth of the southern Woodburn Creek. The beach faces east out of the bay and receives waves averaging over 1 m in the north decreasing slightly to the south. These maintain a single bar, usually with a strong rip against the northern rocks, an occasional central rip and a smaller rip against the southern rocks. A 10 km long vehicle track runs from the Edrom Road to the beach, with a camping area provided on the 200 m of low wooded land between the two meandering creeks and their small lagoons.
