CENTRAL COAST - BEACHES - SPOON BAY - 3 March 2015



I parked at Spoon Bay and went for a walk along the beach and rocks.

There  was a great lookout platform a few metres on the left once entering the path. There was a view across most of the bay with rocks and cliffs to the left with the sparkling water of sunrise. The view further extends to the right across the beach and rocks which jut out into the ocean forming small crescent shaped beaches.
The path to the beach is thick with vegetation and winds its way to the steps that lead onto the beach.

It is a great beach for snorkelling and swimming on calm waveless days. Today wasn't that sort of day.

I walked around the rocks where the waves were smashing and spraying upwards towards the sky.
The beach walk was nice with gulls, cormorants and terns on the edge of the sand and water.

There are a lot of rocks in the water making it an unsafe swim when a swell is running but I have had good swims and snorkels on waveless days and three are great rock pools exploring at low tide.

There are surfable waves in the right conditions.
