A small cove with beach on the west side of the estuary. Very sheltered on southerly storms. Sewage is occasionally discharged directly into the cove here. Currents are safe to swim between beach and harbour or intermediate points like lady’s Cove. Local tri-athlete clubs train here on Monday nights.
5-mile long beach. Shallow along whole length.
Has a consistent long shore drift westward running, usually about 0.25 to about 0.5 knots strong, from the Red & Yellow Lifeguard hut at the end of the Promenade to the Town end. Waves break most strongly in front of Lifeguard Hut. Plenty of surfers.
Has lots of strong rips and currents at Saleen’s end of beach (5 miles from town), around entry to the back lagoon.(Back lagoon is a very shallow tidal lagoon) a few hundred yards behind beach.
The old sewage discharge pipe visible just east of Pebble Beach end at low tide, no longer discharges sewage directly into the water. Instead a new pipe discharges sewage directly into the sea about 500 metres out Because why would anyone ever be out there?
