London Bridge is a well known, hollowed out sea stack that can be viewed from a lookout at the end of London Bridge Road. On either side of London Bridge are two high tide platform beaches, backed by 30 to 40 m high calcarenite bluffs and fronted by continuous intertidal rock flats, with reefs further offshore. Waves average 1.7 m on the outer reefs, with their height at the beach depending on the tide. The narrow sand beaches are awash at high tide, but fronted by exposed rock flats at low tide.
Neither beach is suitable for safe bathing, owing to the high outer waves and dominance of rocks and reefs right up to the beach.
No rideable waves along this section.
The rock flats off the beach can be fished at high tide, or deeper water off the adjoining rock platforms at low tide. However, take care as waves wash over the rocks.
A popular tourist destination to see London Bridge, but only used by others for fishing.Read less
