Kitty Miller Bay lies 500 m inside the bordering Watts Point and Kennon Head, with wide rock platforms at the base of the headlands, and reefs in between them. Consequently, the 500 m long, semi-circular, south facing beach is reasonably sheltered and waves average only 0.7 m at the beach, and even lower at low tide. Kitty Miller Road runs straight out to the beach, with a small car park behind the low dune that backs the beach. The beach is narrow at high tide, while at low tide it expands to more than 50 m wide, with deeper water off the centre and extensive intertidal rock flats to either side. Rips are only present during higher waves.

Swimming

One of the safer south coast beaches, owing to the generally low waves and gently sloping central beach section.

Surfing

There are a number of breaks over the reefs which work best at high tide.

Fishing

The Bay offers some more protected rock platforms to fish the Bay and the reefs.

General

A picturesque, circular bay, accessible by car and offering relatively safe bathing and often good surf further out on the reefs, together with fishing off the rocks.
