Beach

Beach 820 is a 100 m pocket of sand, shell and boulders; the latter delivered by the creek that descends steeply from the small backing valley. Beach 821 is the northern part of the boulder and sand beach that ties 70 m high Hillock Point to the mainland. The beach faces north and is predominantly boulders, with some sand at high tide.

Swimming

Only beach 820 is suitable for swimming, owing to the dominance of boulders and rocks at beaches 820 and 821.

Surfing

Usually none.

Fishing
