From its humble beginnings in a tram carriage, Cronulla SLSC is now one of the largest and strongest clubs in the Surf Life Saving movement. The sheltered beach of Cronulla runs for around 300m between the southern headland and the rocks that separate it from North Cronulla. The beach is closed to surf boards, however Cronulla Point and Shark Island to the south are popular destinations for board riders.

The protection given by the headland has earned Cronulla more than once the name ‘Lake Cronulla’ however a sandbar out the back can produce excellent waves, especially great for body surfing. Swimmers are relatively safe here, with the beach being very flat and wide and swells averaging around 1m. Cronulla Beach is great for families with ideal conditions for children and beginners. The shady Cronulla Park is adjacent to the beach and great for lunch or a picnic.

Parking is limited, however Cronulla is the only Sydney beach directly accessible by train, which makes it quite popular during the summer months. Patrols operate throughout the summer along with seasonal council lifeguards.
