Cathedral Rocks is another of the prime surfing spots along this section of coast. The Great Ocean Road hugs the bluffs along this section and you cannot miss seeing the beach and adjoining rock platforms and reefs. There are three small car parks off the road to park and view, or go surfing.There is a 300 m long beach extending south from the mouth of the small creek. It has rock platforms at either end and a few rocks and reefs, particularly toward the creek. Permanent rips run out at each end.

Swimming

This is a dangerous beach dominated by rocks, reefs and strong rips.

Surfing

The rocks along the southern point provide the base of a long right hander.

Fishing

The easy access and rock platforms make this a popular location for rock and beach fishing.

General

A beach everyone sees driving down the Road and worth the stop to view the scenery or the action if the surf is running.
