Surfers usually head to the northern end of Mullaloo where waves tend to be highest, with higher waves also producing a right-hand surf break along Mullaloo Point.
The Mullaloo Surf Life Saving Club patrols the central-northern section of the beach. The club, which was established in 1960, is located in a large grassy foreshore reserve between the road and the beach, with a large car park next to the clubhouse, and three car parks to the north.
There is a large car park at the foreland, which is also the site of Whitfords Bay Sailing Club and a beach boat launching area, with water skiing permitted north of the point. An undeveloped 200-300 m wide reserve extends for nearly 2 km north of the point to the first of the Mullaloo access point.
