Bawley Point on the South Coast is a reasonably exposed point break that has quite reliable surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the south southwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the southeast. Best around mid tide when the tide is rising. Rarely crowded here. Beware of rips, rocks, locals and sharks.
