Beaches and Surfing
There’s the sheltered Abraham’s Bosom beach, west-facing and surrounded by bush. Have a picnic near the Rock pool and enjoy the calm water or watch the sunset in the evening.
Currarong main beach faces north so doesn’t pick up the large southerly swells that sweep up the coast. It generally has smaller, gentle waves which are ideal for beginners of all ages to try surfing, paddle boarding or kayaking.
At the eastern end of the beach is the Currarong Creek mouth where you can wade across at low tide or swim on a higher tide. Great fun for the kids.
Head west and you come to Plutus Reef, ideal for snorkelling in calm conditions and surfing when the swell picks up.
And then the beach just keeps going. The swells get bigger and there are numerous beach breaks for several kilometres until you come to Hammer Head Point.
Other beaches in the area include the secluded Wilson’s Beach, reached by a 20 minute walk on the track heading north-east from Bosom Beach carpark. And numerous beaches with amazing white sand on the northern side of Jervis Bay are a short drive from Currarong on the Beecroft Peninsula (see Beecroft Weapons Range).
More intrepid surfers can venture to some of these areas to find that perfect wave when the conditions are right.
At Currarong there is something at the beach for everyone.
