Beacons beach is a beautiful beach and slow break with dirt pathway access and its own off street parking. Beacons is a great family beach with a true mix of surfers/beach goers. Dogs are not allowed.
Mid summer, you could say Beacons has a bit of a point break. Unlike many of the breaks in Leucadia, Beacons holds good shape through both small summer swells as well as big northern winter swells. In the summer, you can grab either a slow right or a bit faster left.
The winter swells bring strong, long rights that can run a hundred yards or so. The reef at Beacons is sits in deeper water than most in the area which creates a longer, slower ride building from further out than the neighboring breaks (South Beacons and Bamboo).
Beacons can get pretty choked up with longboards in the summer as the break is slow and fun. Because of its popularity, parking can be a bit challenging during summer holidays and big swells. Park on the street and enjoy the walk if you have to.
