DescriptionSurfside Beach curves southwest of the small boundary headland for 800 m to a low rocky point. It is a very low energy beach backed by a subdivision called Surfside. The houses back the beach with access down the side streets and from a car park at the eastern end. The beach faces the southeast, but receives very low waves, as it is located 6 km inside the bay entrance. The beach face is firm and gently sloping with waves lapping at the base. To the west of the boundary rocks beach NSW 532 trends west for 1 km as a crenulate, very low energy strip of sand, crossed by a small central creek, and fronted by dynamic tidal sand flats up to 200 m wide, then a series of tidal channels and shoals extending up to 600 m into the bay and edge of the deep tidal channel. The flats narrow to the west, with the western end of the beach dropping straight into the deep tidal channel. The shape of the beach changes periodically in response to Clyde River floods and storm seas. A road, houses, seawall and caravan park back the beach, which terminates at the Batemans Bay Bridge.
