Cookies Beach

Cookies Beach

New South Wales, South Coast

The middle of the three beaches at beautiful South Durras is called Cookies Beach and here, at this stunning spot, you'll find short rides that are suitable for kids and beginner surfers, along with decent protection from south swells.

Wave Type
A broad and wide sandbar makes catching whitewater waves fun, but also means close outs are common - so high tide is best for catching green waves. The smallest waves are normally found in the southern corner of Cookies Beach. For progressing surfers, bigger waves and better wave shape (along with stronger rips) can be found at the next beach to the north where there is plenty of space to practise surfing.

During big north swells smaller waves can be found at Durras North Beach which also offers shelter from summer north winds. When massive south swells smash the coast, the waves will likely be too big for beginners here, with the best option for smaller, safer conditions located way down the coast at the southern end of Broulee Beach (south of Batemans Bay).

Good Wind Direction
Best on South to North West winds.

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves
Small North to East swells and Moderate South swells.

- Rocks
- Rip Currents
- Marine life

Have fun surfing South Durras by practising surfing etiquette and surf safety.

The car park is located on the headland at the northern end of the beach.

Lifeguard Patrolled
None of the beaches in the area are patrolled. Surf beach in Batemans Bay is the closest patrolled beach - always swim between the red and yellow flags.

Beginners & kids are best to surf at beaches when Lifeguards are on patrol or with a friend who has decades of surfing experience.

Located at the boat ramp south of Cookies Beach.

Closest Shops
There's the general store in South Durras or head into Batemans Bay for all the services of a regional centre.
