Eagles Nest

Eagles Nest is a sandstone sea stack that sits on a wide rock platform and is awash at high tide.

On the eastern side of the Nest is a 250 m long platform beach lying at the base of 40 m high, vegetated bluffs. It is fronted by continuous, low tide rock flats and several rock reefs. The Nest and reefs reduce waves at the beach to about 1 m and produce a narrow, steep beach. The surf is dominated by the rocks and reefs.

Eagles Nest is a popular photo stop. The beach can be reached from the road side car park, however be very cautious if swimming at the beach.

Only possible at high tide when the rocks are covered, even then be very careful as rip currents sweep over the rocks and reefs.


On the east side of the point a good right hander breaks over the reef in big swells.


The rocks around the Nest are the most popular spot, however use caution as large waves can wash over the rocks.
