North Curl Curl Beach is the host of a one-of-a-kind event, comprising of a 2km ocean swim and a run-swim-run ‘3 Points Challenge’.

Whether you’re a traditional ocean swimmer or you’re looking for more of a challenge, there’s something for you. If you’re super keen, you can warm-up for the True Protein 3 Points Challenge with the ocean swim for only an extra $10!

The Aquaculture 2km Ocean Swim, is held in front of the surf club at the northern end of the beach.

The True Protein 3 Points Challenge takes you on a journey south from the surf club and incorporates three swims, or ‘points’, the first at North Curl Curl, then South Curl Curl and then finally at Freshwater, before a 2.5km run home to the finish.

The entire day at North Curl Curl is a great chance to get out and enjoy the summer sun on Sydney’s northern beaches.

True Protein 3 Points Challenge

The swim-run-swim event starts on the beach in front of North Curl Curl Surf Lifesaving Club, and the first swim is a 300m swim out into the surf and back onto the beach.

The second leg is a 1500m run south along the sand dunes and down to South Curl Curl.

The third leg is another 300m swim at South Curl Curl. Then there’s another 1000m run along the rock face towards Freshwater Beach.

The second last leg is a quick 200m swim at Freshwater Beach.

The final stage is a 2.5km run to North Curl Curl, before a 200m dash along the sand to the finish line.

Aquaculture 2km Ocean Swim

The 2km swim starts in the northern corner of North Curl Curl Beach where you’ll swim out and towards Dee Why, then turn towards the south and back to the start.


Finishing off the day is the exciting Skins race.

Skins brings together the top three male and female place-getters from both the Aquaculture 2km Ocean Swim and the True Protein 3 Points Challenge in a head-to-head sprint battle.

The race-off consists of 3 x 75m sprints from the back of the break into shore with two competitors dropping out from each race until there are only two left to complete to be the overall winner.

Besides the beach, there’s not a lot to do in North Curl Curl if you’re looking to head away from the beach. You could head south to Manly and enjoy a day out amongst the hip and happening.

Vegetarians rejoice, there’s a little place called Emilia’s on Griffin Road worth trying out.

Gusto on the Beach is down at South Curl Curl surf club, or for something local, try COOH cafe and roaster for coffee and something to eat.

There are two fairly decent beach car parks, the largest one is off Griffin Street, south of the surf club, and there’s one at the end of Huston Parade on the north side of the lagoon.
