Beach

Beach 824 is a 200 m long sand beach, fringed by boulder beaches and backed by grassy slopes that rise steeply to a 60 m high ridge line. The beach is almost awash at high tide, with a 50 m wide low tide bar and a permanent rip against the northern rocks.

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.
