The conditions at Bungan Beach make it suitable for both fishing and surfing. The latter is a favourite activity at this secluded beach; mainly because there are reasonable beach breaks. Further north, the corner cliffs provide much-needed protection from the sea breeze, resulting in a perfect swell.
Swimmers will also enjoy spending time at the beach. It is important to note that there are two mighty rips at both ends of the beach, in addition to shifting rips that occur at different places within the waters. While this is a patrolled beach during summer, it helps to swim between the flags for personal safety. Additionally, visitors who are not familiar with the beach need to be extra cautious.
Bungan Beach is less than an hour’s drive from the city. Since it is a secluded beach, it is visited by far fewer people in comparison to other Sydney beaches. As such, it is an excellent option for those who want privacy and tranquillity against the background of the beach’s stunning scenery.
