This beach is a little off the highway, but a popular spot with swimmers, surfers, windsurfers and fishers.
Pacific Parade runs around the point and parallels the main 750m Currumbin Beach, providing good access to the length of the beach, with large car parks on the point and at Currumbin Surf Life Saving Club, located beside Elephant Rock.
The beach receives waves averaging 1.5m, which produce a 200m wide double bar system. The inner bar is usually attached to the beach and is cut by four rips, including a permanent rip against Currumbin Rock. The deep trough runs out past Elephant Rock all the way to Currumbin Rock, with the outer bar further offshore.
This is a potentially hazardous beach owing to the persistent rips and strong permanent rips against the rocks, particularly at Currumbin Rock. The safest bathing is at the inlet beach and at the southern patrolled end of the surf beach. Stay on the inner bar and well clear of the rocks and rips.
