Smaills Beach

Smaills Beach

Smaills Beach is east along Tomahawk Road from Ocean Grove and Tomahawk Beach. Before you reach the beach access, there are a couple of stopping points high on the cliffs above the beach.

There you will find some old WW2 gun emplacements, now repurposed as public art, with some less formal graffiti, as well as more superb views. As an alternative, it is an easy coastal walk from Tomahawk Beach and back.

Continue down to the carpark, then it’s a few minutes walk to Smaills Beach through the sand dunes and scrub. This is another beautiful white sand Pacific Coast surf beach, although the natural ocean rips make it dangerous for unpatrolled swimming.

Watch out for sea lions and penguins at dawn and dusk. You may also see the odd nudist.
