Big Nobby & Pebbly Beach

Crescent Head is dominated by a large headland known as Big Nobby. It protects the village from the southerly winds. There is also an unusual type of beach for Eastern Australia, made up of shingle, cobbles and even boulders. The Beachsafe App rates Pebbly Beach as one of the  most dangerous in New South Wales. It does not look like an appealing spot for a swim.

  6. The headlands on that part of the coast are fabulous - and LOVE that beach, although it'd be a bit hard on the feet ...

  8. Lovely shot! I love this kind of beach; I can spend hours looking for beautiful and interesting pebbles, and there are usually many good photo motifs too :-)

  9. I had no idea there was anything else than sandy beaches in Crescent Head. Not an inviting swimming spot. Is it any good for surfing?
