I visited this Beach the other day and found it to be very crowded and hostile in the surf. It was nothing like people mentioned on previous trip advisor comments. It is a beautiful place but it was over crowded, when I visited, I was expecting a quiet secluded beach. Where I parked there was a black mark on the... More

Dudley Beach is unspoiled, and is a good beach to visit if you want to steer clear of the more central beaches like Nobbys, Newcastle, Bar and Merewether. The water and beach were clean, but for swimming, probably not ideal for those who are not strong confident swimmers. There were numerous dogs running up and down the beach, something which... More

Go to this beach regularly as it's close to home. Unspolit, uncrowded and beautiful. Long sandy beach with rocky platforms on its southern side. A couple of pools which are good for swimming in [not at high tide!!]. Unpatrolled but not overly dangerous if you respect the ocean. A fantastic beach.
