This remarkably undeveloped town and its collection of beaches has long held mythic status among the global surfing community. There's plenty to enjoy even if you're not here for the idyllic, secluded breaks. Number One Beach has beautiful rock pools, usually mellow waves and beautiful sand. Or take the 660m walk to the Sugarloaf Point Lighthouse for epic ocean views, with a detour to lonely Lighthouse Beach, a popular surfing spot.
Near the lighthouse is a lookout over the actual Seal Rocks – islets where Australian fur seals can sometimes be spotted. Humpback whales swim past during their annual migration.
