Number 16 Beach

Natural Attractions

The spectacular rock formations makes this pristine ocean beach a must visit destination for photographers. Number 16 Beach is best visited at low tide to explore the rock pools, catch a fish or to get the best shot of “Dragon Head Rock”.

The rocks are covered in seaweed and extremely slippery so it is best to wear practical footwear and remain aware of tides and dangerous surf conditions during your visit.

The beach is accessed via a small car park opposite a general store, with a sandy track over the dunes leading to steep stairs. The sandy beach is a picturesque spot for a stroll or to sit and watch the sunset.

The beach is not patrolled and is recommended for experienced surfers only.

The car park marks the approximate half way point of the 26 kilometre long coastal walk through the National Park from Cape Schanck to Sorrento Ocean Beach.
