Penneshaw Beach (Hog Bay) is 600 m long and faces the northeast. There is a reserve and low foredune running the length of the beach, with toilets and picnic facilities at the western end, and a monument to the French explorers at the eastern end. A road backs the length of the beach, providing good access and parking.
The town's beach known as Hog Bay, was named after the fact that numerous pigs were released here long ago. Today it is a great place for a swim and for a picnic making it a great family beach.
