One of only two ocean baths in the Barrington Coast.

Black Head Beach is 1.6 km long running in a gentle east-facing arc between Red Head and Black Head and is regarded as one of the best swimming beaches in the Manning Valley. It features large shady Norfolk Island pines, an ocean pool, picnic areas, and barbecues.

The beach is patrolled during the swimming season (October to April) by both professional life guards during school holidays and by volunteer surf life savers from Black Head Surf Life Saving Club on weekends and public holidays.

Behind the dune is Black Head lagoon with a creek emptying into the sea near the surf club. The picnic area is very pretty here and there's a short timber bridge onto the sand dune.

The Black Head Ocean Baths (also known as the Black Head Rock Pool) comprises of a 30m pool and children's swimming area.

Dropped by here after a local recommended it. What a great spot and such a well kept pool. Feels like you are sitting in the ocean waves. It was a touch blowy but there were many families and puppies taking advantage of the area. Life savers were watching the beach which is attached. No problem parking. Very friendly people all out enjoying the balmy 36 degrees

Nice beach that has grass and shade trees to sit under - near surf club. Not sure why they pulled up the flags at 12 am Sunday... Just before a ton of people came to swim :/
