Beaumaris North Beach




Beaumaris North beach is a relatively natural, narrow beach with a strip of sand and an increasingly rock and reef dominated surf.

North of Ricketts Point, the coast trends north-west and is dominated by 10 to 20 m high, vegetated bluffs, fronted by extensive rocks and reefs.

Between the bluffs and rocks is the narrow Beaumaris North beach. Beaumaris North Beach is 800 m long and dominated by reefs throughout.

Beach Road runs along the top of the bluffs and parallels the beach, however vehicle access is restricted to the yacht club, where there is a large car park and picnic area. Elsewhere, parking is on Beach Road, with a climb down the bluffs required to reach North Beach.

The beach faces south-west, exposing it to periodic strong, south-west winds and waves. The waves break heavily over the reefs and there is insufficient sand to build a generally attached bar, with rip channels running along the reefs.

Swimming - Best at high tide when the rocks and reefs are covered. Dangerous when there are wind waves, owing to the dominance of reefs and rip currents.

Beaumaris North beach has a General Beach Hazard Rating of 4/10 (Moderately hazardous).

Review:


A fairly narrow sandy beach which is backed by vegetated cliffs and the water is dotted with big rocks. Not really a great place to swim due to all the rocks.

There is a concrete track which comes down from McGregor Avenue to the beach at the south end of the beach and a wooden staircase leads down from #355 Beach Road at the northern end of the beach.
