Three hundred metres south of the Betka River mouth, a bluff protrudes across the beach with rocks continuing into the surf zone. Around the rocks is Surf South Beach; a 400 m long sandy beach littered with numerous rocks and remnants of bluffs, and backed by 20 m high steep bluffs along its southern half. The rocks continue into the surf as rocks and reef. The reefs lower the average waves to 1 m, which produce a more continuous attached bar, only cut by rips following high seas.

Swimming

A relatively safe and quiet beach, however there are numerous rocks in the water and care should be taken, especially near the rocks.

Surfing

Lower beach break, but watch the rocks.

Fishing

The southern point provides access to deeper water.

General

Most people walk along his beach from the main Betka beach. A nice spot to get away from the crowds, but use care if bathing amongst the rocks.
