Curio Bay has a very safe beach for swimming and surfing and is very popular during the summer months. The surf is frequented by a Pod of Hector Dolphins and they enjoy swimming alongside bathers but it is essential for their future that they are not disturbed in any way.
Boating and Water Skiing
Fortrose estuary is a great expanse of water at high tide for the purpose of boating, fishing and water-skiing. It is not a safe outlet to the sea because of a sandbar at the entrance. The Fortrose Boat Club welcomes visitors and they can use the boat ramp for a minimal fee.
