Five hundred metres south of Skenes Creek is Beach 376. It lies right beside the Great Ocean Road, and is a 150 m long sand beach bordered by rock and shore platforms, with a few rocks on the beach and in the surf. Around the southern rocks is Seafarer Beach: a 700 m long, east facing beach, which has rocks and reefs scattered along the beach and in the surf. It is backed by a low foredune, then the road.Both beaches receive waves averaging between 1 and 1.5 m and have 100 m wide surf zones, with permanent rips against the boundary rocks and the larger reefs.

Swimming

Be careful of the rocks, reefs and rips on these two beaches. If swimming, stay close inshore and on the attached part of the bar.

Surfing

There are usually low to moderate beach breaks amongst the reefs and rocks.

Fishing

There are several good holes and gutters formed by both the rips and reefs that can be fished from the beaches, or the rocks at low tide.

General

Two sandy beaches next to the road, but with enough rock and reef to require care if bathing or surfing here.
