Elouera Beach appears to be the most impacted as big seas continue to pound Cronulla.
A large amount of sand was washed away by pounding waves on Friday night.
Around high tide, waves were also smashing over the Esplanade between Cronulla and North Cronulla.
The wild surf is continuing on Saturday, with top surfers putting on a great exhibition.

Sutherland Shire Council will closely monitor the impact of the predicted damaging surf conditions on Cronulla's beaches today and over the weekend.
The Bureau of Meteorology has today issued a severe weather warning for abnormally high tides and damaging surf right along the NSW coast.
The warning, for the Sydney Metropolitan area, as well as parts of the northern rivers, mid-north coast, Hunter, Illawarra and South Coast districts, was issued just before noon.
The bureau says there will be large, powerful waves and abnormally high tides along the NSW coast.
Hazardous surf warnings are also in place for today and tomorrow.
A Sutherland Shire Council spokeswoman said its lifeguards would closely monitor the situation.
"In response to the Bureau of Meteorology's recent severe weather warning alert regarding anticipated hazardous surf conditions, Sutherland Shire Council's Ocean Safety and Lifeguards Unit will closely monitor the impact of these predicted weather conditions on our beaches, particularly observing access points to the beaches and barricading areas that pose any potential threat to public safety," she said.
"Council completed improvements to the resilience of the Prince Street seawall in late 2020 and continues to monitor the condition of our coastline, particularly during severe weather events.
"Residents are encouraged to seek further details regarding predicted weather warnings from the Bureau of Meteorology's website.
"Residents are also encouraged to raise any concerns about damage to community facilities or infrastructure via council's 'Snap, Send, Solve' app."
