One kilometre to the south of Nhulunbuy is the pristine Baringura or Little Bondi beach, a 200m long white sand beach, bordered by 10-20m high red laterite cliffs, extending 200-300m off the beach.
These reduces waves to just under 1m and maintains a low tide bar. There are large sand dunes behind the beach with informal camping in this area. With its turquoise blue waters Little Bondi is a relatively popular surfing beach, and at times the entire Gove surf life saving patrol moves to the beach, so people can enjoy the surf in greater safety. Be on the look out for crocodiles year round, as well as stingers which are more prominent in the wet season.
