The hazard rating refers to physical beach and surf conditions ONLY and
does not include potentially dangerous marine life.
Kiama Downs Surf Life Saving Club patrols on Jones Beach, Kiama Downs from October - April each year. Nippers meet every Sunday morning during the patrolling season. Training in First Aid, Resuscitation, and surf skills are undertaken on a regular basis.
Kiama Downs beach is a relatively straight 900 m long east-facing beach, located between 30m high Minnamurra Point and basalt columns of the southern Cathedral Rocks. The beach is also known as Jones and Boyd's beach, with the surf club and backing community called Kiama Downs. A road runs the length of the beach, with the northern half given over to the dunes, parks and the Kiama Downs SLSC (founded 1982), while some beachfront houses back the southern half.
The beach receives waves averaging 1-1.5 m, which result in a single bar usually cut by six, including permanent rips against each headland, the northern being the stronger. Rocks also occur in the surf toward the southern end.
