Sorrento Ocean or Back Beach lies at the end of Ocean Beach Road, 1.5 km south of the bayside town of Sorrento. There is a large car park and a picnic area, as well as a new surf lifesaving club, on the bluffs behind the beach. The beach lies in a natural amphitheatre formed by the protruding western headland and the patchy offshore reefs. The beach faces south-west and waves average 1.6 m over the reefs, but are lower at the beach. Here they have built one of the wider beaches in this section, with a continuous attached bar.
Beach Length: 0.4km
General Hazard Rating: 6/11
