South of the Five Sisters and around the corner is Yirrell Beach. A crescent shaped sand and pebble beach with a rocky point that sticks out on it’s north side. There is always quite a bit of shorepound on the main beach, but big waves come into the point and sometimes they wrap around making nice spaced-out kickers to launch off of.
There is a sort of peninsula where you can launch from that has sand on the shore and also sections of large rocks above it.
@ Yirrell Beach
Launch below where the first break in the seawall is where you can walk on the beach. Where the rows of houses start (stay 200 meters from nesting sites). Also, at the end of Bay View Drive, or at the southern most part of the bay near the parking lot & water treatment plant.
Certain areas in the northern section of Yirrell Beach are to be avoided in the Plover season.
