South Gorge is a gorgeous little spot protected from Northerly winds. However, it must be noted this beach is NOT patrolled and caution must be taken due to the strong currents and rips occurring most of the year where it is easy for one to be swept out to sea and into the rocky caves nearby.
Caution: you will encounter a strong permanent rip in this area. This beach is NOT patrolled.
Not usually suitable conditions.
Be careful as the rocks are steep and are washed by large waves.
On leash at all times.
Type: Formal – 20 spaces
