Nestled on the NSW South Coast between Meroo and Murramarang National Parks, Bawley Point is home to spectacular stretches of coastline. Whether you’re looking for the perfect place to take a dip, settle on the sand for a picnic, catch a wave, cast a line, or get up close with local wildlife, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Bawley Beach is an ideal all-rounder. Protected by headland, the beach offers surf breaks popular with the locals. The Guillotines surf break is famed for shallow barrelling waves that break onto the bordering rocks, allowing onlookers a great vantage point.
Further along the headland, those who prefer serenity over swell can find protected areas to swim and snorkel, perhaps even catching a glimpse of the resident stingrays.
Not far from the beach, Bawley Point Reserve has a picnic area and children’s playground perfect for lunch breaks.
Short and sweet, what Gannet Beach lacks in size it makes up for in beauty. Find a quiet spot on the sand and enjoy paddling amongst the petite waves.
Merry Beach is a popular location for families, fisherman and nature gazers. Offering a variety of coastal walks, explore O’Hara Headland with its rocky platforms and views of dolphins and birdlife or take the Snapper Point Walking Track that visits fellow beaches Pretty and Pebbly.
Venture to the shoreline of Pretty Beach, where the scenery lives up to its name. Fantastic for swimming and fishing, cap off a day here with a BBQ at the picnic area and watch an unforgettable sunset where the ocean meets the mountains.
Famous for its resident Kangaroo mob, Pebbly Beach is located within Murramarang National Park. In addition to friendly fauna, visitors can also enjoy an abundance of local flora including Banksias, Coastal Rosemary and Lomandra that all grow on exposed headlands, shaped by the salty sea winds.
Another beach located within Murramarang National Park, Depot Beach is a picturesque swimming hole with crystal clear water and plenty of native wildlife. Once you’ve had a splash in the surf, trek through an adjoining short rainforest track and take a walk back in time through an endangered ecology for a glimpse of what the south coast would have looked like millions of years ago.
Visiting with your four-legged friend? Cormorant Beach is pet friendly and an ideal stretch for a walk or dip. Dogs are welcome off-leash 24/7.
