Long Description:
Shark Net Beach is a small beach of pure white sand with a wooded bluff behind & rocky platforms either side. There used to be a shark net enclosing the sandy section but this was removed when a rock pool was constructed nearby.

It is only a few minutes walk to the centre of Huskisson with its cafes & the Husky Pub.

The beach is not patrolled by life guards but the waters are calm & despite the bay being the home of many shark species, there have been no recorded attacks. The beach is suitable for swimming & sunbathing but not in the nude as it is a family beach. Vehicles, horses & dogs are not allowed. Ball sports could be played however its small size would be restrictive. The beach is not suitable for people with a disability. You can access the beach throughout the year & there are no fees involved. Parking bays on nearby streets surround the beach & access is via flights of stairs.

There is a children's adventure playground above the beach & the park has toilets. The shops are just across the road if the kids want an icecream.

You need to bring your own beach furniture & a picnic basket would be handy as there are open grassy areas on the edge of the beach.
