Summary: Stokes Island Beach is small surf beach in Meroo National Park on the NSW south coast. Above the beach is a picnic area and campground.

Sandwiched between the long Tabourie Point Beach and the much smaller Sunburnt Beach, is Stokes Island Beach. Nearby is the Sunburnt Beach Campground, which provides dispersed walk-in camping and has walking tracks to both Sunburnt Beach and Stokes ISland Beach. The south-facing beach has a permanent rip and medium-sized waves, and is suitable for surfing and swimming (with caution).

Stokes Island Beach

At the northern of the beach is Stokes Island, a narrow rock outcrop that is often connected to the beach by a sandbar at low tide.

Just above the beach is the Stokes Island Picnic Area, which has a large grassy area and some picnic tables.

Getting to Stokes Island Beach

A short walking track (about 250m one-way) from the end of Blackbutt Road goes to the Stokes Island Picnic Area and then down to the beach. The partly unsealed Blackbutt Road is off the Princes Highway south of Ulladulla, about 3.5 hours from Sydney.
