Beaches

Beaches near Gerroa holiday rentals

As a coastal town, Gerroa is home to a variety of sandy beaches that the whole family can enjoy. The most popular shoreline near holiday rentals is Gerroa Beach named after the town itself. Swimmers are generally safe as there are no serious riptides, but just be wary of the mouth of Crooked Creek during the falling tide as the currents can get notably strong there. The waves here are useful for beginner surfers, but experts looking for extreme action will need to go elsewhere. Walkers Beach, on the other hand, isn’t suitable for swimming due to the strong rips, but it can make a great fishing destination. Just be sure to watch out for waves around the more exposed areas of the beach. Nearby Gerringong Harbour is largely similar being a favourite spot for fishing off of the exposed basalt rocks.
