Surfing and Swimming
Unlike the protected beaches of Jervis Bay that feel like one big, beautiful lake, Culburra Beach and Warrain Beach face directly out onto the ocean, making them perfect for surfers looking to catch waves.... Stretching for 3.7km total, there’s plenty of room across both beaches for surfing – bring your boards from home or hire a board and a wetsuit from Culburra Beach Surf School & Hire.
If you’ve never learned how to balance on the waves, enrol in a short class to learn the trick, or hire bodyboards for a day of easy fun instead. For families wanting a stress-free swim, take the kids to Tilbury Cove near Penguin Head Lookout between the two beaches, and relax in the calm swell with a playground nearby.
Explore the idyllic little headland and the Crookhaven Heads Lighthouse at the north end of Culburra Beach, constructed of timber in 1882 and now an endangered lighthouse. The walk to get there from the... carpark is a relatively easy fifteen minutes through bush, grassland and rocks, and whilst the lighthouse itself is unassuming, the views along the way and at the end are worth the short trip, and perfect for a picnic spot.
If you’re a fisher, head to the Crookhaven Heads Boat Ramp to watch the boats coming and going and take your pick from three wharves for a chance of hooking your own or simply take a stroll along the waters edge later in the day for some spectacular sunsets.
In case catching and cleaning your own aquatic snacks isn’t your idea of a fun time, in that area is also the Crookhaven and Shoalhaven rivers, which are part of Australia’s Oyster Coast. Taste succulent... local oysters from Jim Wild’s Oyster Service at Greenwell Point, just a ten-minute drive away, or for convenience you can just head to The Little Snapper in Culburra Beach for oysters, mussels, and more fresh seafood with cheap cocktails.Read More
