Rye Beach begins at White Cliffs and runs past the 300 m long Rye Jetty, almost due east for 4 km. A foreshore reserve backs the entire beach which, beside the popular jetty, has two boat ramps, a yacht club and a camping reserve. The beach is backed by the low reserve and fronted by shallow sand flats that are between 300 and 400 m wide. The narrowest flats are found at the jetty. They are covered at high tide, but exposed at low. Waves are usually low and only exceed a few decimetres during strong northerly winds.

Swimming

Usually a safe beach close inshore. Depth varies over the flats with the tide and deep water lies off the end of the flats.

Surfing

None, except for low wind waves during strong northerlies.

Fishing

Only off the Jetty.

General

Rye Beach has a very popular and always full summer camping reserve while the Jetty area attracts day visitors. Do not jump or dive off the jetty as the water is very shallow.
