Bawley Beach is protected by the large southern headland (Bawley Point) which features two popular surf breaks.
On the northern protected side of the point there is a jetty and a boat ramp making for great fishing and paddling. The break near the jetty is called Guillotines and is popular with body boarders.
Nearby Bawley Point Reserve has a picnic area, a children's playground and toilets (including an accessible toilet).
Caters for people with sufficient mobility to climb a few steps but who would benefit from fixtures to aid balance. (This includes people using walking frames and mobility aids)
Caters for people who use a wheelchair.
