At the southern end of Wangetti Beach, the Cook Highway again takes on the steep slopes of the Macalister Range. The ranges rise nearly 500 m within 1.5 km of the coast, and require the highway to hug the lower slopes and skirt the narrow beaches. Just east of Red Cliff Point is a 500 m patch of sand and numerous boulders and cobbles, that comprises a very accessible and visible beach (707), but not one suited for safe swimming. Two kilometres further east is a second beach (708) of a similar nature, only with a western pocket of sand. Both beaches receive waves averaging less than 0.5 m and have a steep, sand-cobble high tide beach fronted by rocky and sandy patches at low tide.
While waves are usually low along these beaches, the prevalence of rocks on the beach and in the surf make them generally unsuitable for safe swimming.
During strong Trades there are some right-handers running along the steep, rocky shore.
Reasonably popular spots owing to the easy access and rocky vantage points.
Two highly visible beaches worth a photo stop, but with no facilities and unsuitable for safe swimming.
