There is a Holiday Park, adjacent to the beach which has its own beach access. Drive through the holiday park to Short Street boat ramp and picnic area. Surf Club headland walk is from the carpark and has some steep wooden stairs.

For the less active, relax with coastal views at the peninsula with the mosaic table and chairs, which is a popular lunch area. Perhaps you may enjoy the 11km stroll from Scotts Head to Nambucca Heads via the ocean beach front. Escape, relax from the regular hustle and bustle; try your luck fishing, in one of its many peaceful tranquil beach or rock locations.
There are lookouts on the southern side, at Mathew Street. The road ends on the cliff line and residents have prime real estate views of Southwest Rocks region.
Elephant Rock, a picturesque headland, at the intersection of Vernon and Ocean Roads, has walking paths down to Pirate Cove and Little Beach or along the escarpment of Elephant Rock. Benches are available to soak in the views from the road.
Elephant Rock escarpment from the ocean is breathtaking. A popular vantage spot for Dolphin and Whale watchers during May to October. Humpbacks are often viewed very close to the shore during their migration. Fireworks are often seen of Elephant Rock during festive times. Vernon and Ocean Roads lead to Elephant Rock overlooking Pirate Cove. Little Beach is more a surfer's area due to the strong currents and swimming is suggested at the main beach. A lovely destination worth exploring.
