Culburra is spoilt for choice for beaches. Most streets off Prince Edward have street-end beach entrances onto Culburra Beach. Street-ends and beach paths to Warrain Beach can be found off of Eastbourne Avenue.
During Summer school holidays, Warrain Beach is patrolled by the Surflifesaving Club. Culburra Beach is patrolled at Ocean Street Beach, only during Summer school holidays. Can't say it too many times...always swim with a buddy, and mind the rips.
Kayaking and Stand-up Paddleboarding
Curleys Bay on the Crookhaven River and Lake Wollumboola are both suitable for kayaking and paddleboarding. Curleys Bay, once called Oyster Bay, still has oyster leases and lease markers that might require tricky navigation for the novice. Both are subject to tides and winds. Check in with Morto at Burra Bikes and Boards for up-do-date information, gear and supplies.

Just across the Crookhaven River is Greenwell Point, home of the local oyster industry. Turn right at the red Pyree schoolhouse to get there.

Thank you for your gentle presence on the beaches. Thank you for being mindful about taking everything you brought to the beach with you when you leave the beach. Balloons, small bits of bags, small plastic toys, cut fishing line, hair from your hairbrush, plastic bits and pieces -- all harm wildlife as they inevitably make their way into the sea where they are attractive to sea creatures.
Please pick up after your human family and your fur family. Doggie bags are available at Arches. Please take a roll along with you! Thanks.
