Buckleys Bay is a small, attractive, 150 m long beach, bordered by a low basalt point and boulders and backed by 10 to 20 m high dunes. There is a caravan park behind the dunes with foot access to the beach. The beach faces south-east and receives waves averaging 1 m. These waves usually maintain a shallow, continuous bar, with rips forming against the rocks during higher waves.

Swimming

Moderately safe when waves are 1 m or less. When higher, stay to the centre of the beach and clear of the rocks and rips.

Surfing

Usually a low beach break which closes out during higher waves.

Fishing

There is deep water along the side of the rocks, however take care as they are washed by waves at high tide.

General

A small beach used by holiday makers from the backing caravan park.
