Seal Rocks is a small beach with a little right-hand point break. Best suited to beginners and kids but on massive swell can be fun for all. Being inside the bay, it is sheltered from some of the more south swells and needs an easterly component in the swell to have a wave. When this happens you’ll see long walling right-handers peel off the point a couple of hundred metres into the beach. A perfect shaped right-hander that can take you all the way to the sand. A pretty mellow wave that lends itself to longboards and fishes.
