Flynns Beach is the home of Port Macquarie Surf Life Saving Club
It was chosen for the surf club in 1929 because it has good vehicle access with a beachfront park and car parking. It also has less rock and more sand in its 500 metre length and it receives slight protection from Nobby Head resulting in an east-northeast orientation.
The small Flynns Point separates the isolated Rocky Beach and popular Flynns Beach.
Waves average 1.4 metres and maintain two permanent rips against the northern headland and southern rocks, with a third rip crossing the central bar during and following higher waves. Seaward of the bar is a trough and outer bar also cut by rips at either end.

FLYNNS BEACH IS NOT PATROLLED AT THIS TIME OF YEAR
All patrols by volunteer lifesavers have been cancelled for the remainder of the 2019-2020 season to protect the safety and welfare of volunteer surf lifesavers from potential infection by the coronavirus and to support the Government’s position in discouraging large gatherings of people on beaches across NSW.
