Park the car next to the open space/park (can get crowed when good or when Frenchmans Boardriders is on). There is an another track to the beach about 50-100m up the road from the open space/park.
The beachbreak over the last 9-10 month has been experience bad banks or none at all but it seems on the inprove.
200m to the north is Crabbs Creek right and left. Behind Frenchmans rock there is Frenchmans reef but many longboards during weekends. Along the beach about 1km is Hams Beach and the Caves Beach where the Surf Life Savers are based.
Nothing exciting or special about the beach break.
It is a good spot for all surfers becauses there are fun waves for the grommets and more experienced surfers, Frenchmans Reef Break is located next to the beachbreak which is a longboarders wave and there are plenty of sand banks for the novices who have just started.
