Gap Beach

Gap Beach


Gap Beach is located one kilometre to the south in Hat Head National Park and is surrounded by the Smoky Cape Range, with the slopes of 220 metre high Little Smoky forming the northern headland.

Access is via hiking the Smoky Cape Track from Little Bay to the north or from Captain Cook’s Lookout at Smoky Cape.

The beach is 900 metre in length. The beach is exposed, with waves averaging 1.5 metre and dominated by rips across the inner and outer bars coupled with permanent rips against the headlands. Under high waves the beach is drained by one large mega rip, so beware.
