Balnarring is a small beach settlement located at the end of Balnarring Road. The road ends at the main Balnarring Beach (also called Tulum Beach), which has a foreshore reserve with picnic facilities. There is a small jetty crossing the beach, with boats moored offshore. Another reserve and picnic area are located behind the western beach. The main beach is 2.5 km long and faces south, curving around at its western end to the south-east. It extends from the mouth of Merricks Creek, which runs along behind much of the beach, to sandy Balnarring Point, which is fronted by reef flats that separate the two beaches. The west beach is 1.3 km long and curves around to face the east by Palmer Bluff, its southern boundary. Both beaches receive low wind waves and are relatively narrow, with a moderately steep beach face and deep water off the beach at high tide. At low tide however, the sand and reef flats are exposed.

Swimming

Two relatively safe beaches protected from westerly winds and waves. Best at mid to high tide when the tidal flats are covered.

Surfing

Usually none, except in big outside swell, which can produce a small, well-shaped right hander around Balnarring Point.

Fishing

Best off the jetty or beach at high tide.

General

A relatively quiet holiday settlement with two attractive sandy beaches and foreshore facilities.
