Ranelagh Beach is surrounded by bluffs and houses, with the best public access from southern Earimil Drive. The beach is 450 m long, with numerous boat sheds backing the crenulate beach. It faces west and, while exposed to westerly winds and waves, has a surf zone dominated by patchy reefs.

Swimming

Relatively safe during low waves and at high tide. However, watch the rocks and reefs at low tide and rips when waves are breaking.

Surfing

During strong westerlies there are some waves at high tide over the reefs.

Fishing

Good gutters run out along the reefs and rocks at each end.

General

A difficult to find beach used mainly by locals and the boat owners.
