Kiama’s Black Beach gets its name (and colour) from the black basalt sand and cobbles that line its shore. Although less popular with swimmers than with snorkelers, the ocean pools on either side of Black Beach are both beautiful places to enjoy a saltwater swim. Spend a while relaxing on the sprawling grass of Black Beach Reserve, or test your skills on the stunning granite ping-pong table.
Conveniently situated between Kiama Harbour and the centre of town, Black Beach also hosts some of Kiama’s most well-known events, including the markets held on the third Sunday and fourth Sunday of the month.
Nearby points of interest include the historic Kiama Post Office (constructed in 1878), and a memorial to the SS Bombo, a now-popular dive site that departed here for the final time on 24 February 1949.
