South Gorge is a popular beach owing to its protection from most winds and calmer inshore waters. However, in the surf and off the beach, there is a strong permanent rip, as well as rocks to either side.
Relatively safe inshore, however, you will encounter the strong permanent rip in deeper water.
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
