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.
Further information about Flynns Beach – including current conditions – can be viewed on Beachsafe.
Volunteer lifesavers from Port Macquarie Surf Life Saving Club patrol the beach on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays over summer. The Australian Lifeguard Service patrols the beach on all other days over summer. Patrols commenced on Saturday 29 September 2018 and will finish on Sunday 28 April 2019.
