This is a potentially hazardous beach owing to the inner bar rips and is particularly hazardous near any of the rock groynes.
Once known as North Palm Beach the surf club is located 1.2km south of Tallebudgera, toward the centre of the beach. Heavy development along this beach tends to restrict access and parking, while the seawall, when exposed, also restricts access to the beach and even the size of the beach, particularly at high tide.
Do not swim at the creek mouths, as they have deep tidal channels with strong currents. The safest swimming is in the three patrolled areas, with Tallebudgera providing the best access. An artificial reef has been created to control sand movement in the area.
Formed in 1946, Pacific SLSC is a small, family-orientated club that has a strong community culture and focuses on member development.
Pacific SLSC is the smallest club on the Gold Coast, and is based between Tallebudgera and Palm beaches. Since its formation in 1947, club numbers have grown to over 300 members, with a strong focus on youth development. Members patrol the beach from mid-September through to the end of April, with the Nippers program on Sunday mornings during the season.
The club was named the 2016 Australian Surf Club of the Year as well as the 2016 Queensland Youth Development Club of the year, outstanding achievements for such a small club.
