Beach

Beach 823 occupies the front of a sloping valley. It is 500m long, faces south-east into the Trades and is fringed by boulder beaches and 100m high rocky headlands and slopes. The beach itself consists of a low, narrow high tide beach, with a 50m wide low tide bar, along the edge of which are usually two to three rips, with another two permanent rips against the boulders.

Swimming

All three beaches have permanent hazards, including boulders and headland rips on the longer two beaches. Use care if swimming, particularly toward low tide when the rips are strongest.

Surfing

Chance of a break over the bar and rips on the two more sandy beaches.

Fishing

All three offer plenty of rocks to fish from, plus the permanent and beach rip holes.

General

Three exposed, sandy beaches, dominated by the surrounding slopes and headlands.
