Catherine Hill Bay Location: Flowers Dr, Catherine Hill Bay This stunning beach is patrolled in the summer months and is a popular surfing beach. Located in the small historic mining town of Catherine Hill Bay which you will feel like you’ve stepped back in time. The backdrop is a large coal loading jetty making it ideal for photographs! After a swim at the beach, wonder up to the historic Catho Pub and enjoy a meal and some live music. Caves Beach Location: Caves Beach Rd, Caves Beach Caves Beach is a great day out for the whole family. There is a network of sea caves to explore at low tide, BBQ and picnic facilities and 300m of sandy stretch of patrolled beach perfect to explore with kids. The coastal headline is littered with rock pools, weathered rocks and small caves. If you head up the stairs to the lookout, you can walk down a path to the secluded Spoons Rock beach along Wallarah walking track (keep an eye out for whales during May-November). We recommend grabbing a coffee from the Mawson cafe or enjoy a meal at the Caves Coastal Bar.

Blacksmiths Beach Location: Ungala Rd, Blacksmiths Blacksmiths Beach is located at the southern end of 9-mile Beach and is a great family friendly beach to explore during your stay. The patrolled beach is known for its safe swimming, due to the shelter of the breakwall. It is also the only beach in the area that allows 4WD access (permit required). Take a walk or bike ride along the pathed breakwall or down to Grannies Pool - a shallow tidal pool perfect for the children to swim. There is a fish and chip store and playground opposite the beach. We recommend a local favourite pie from Barry’s Pies while you’re visiting!
