South of Rocky Point are three small, rock dominated beaches - Rocky Point, Arthur Point and Zilzie Beach. The three beaches face east and are all bordered by rocky points and intertidal rock flats.
Zilzie beach (1380) is the longest and most accessible of the three beaches. It is 600 m long, extending from Arthur to Zilzie Points. It is also composed of finer sand and has a 200 m wide, low gradient high and low tide beach. There is a small car park at the northern end, an amenities block in the centre and a picnic area toward the south, with houses backing the beachfront road.
These are three relatively exposed beaches dominated by rocky boundaries. Be careful at Rocky and Arthur, as rips can run out against the rocks when waves are breaking. Zilzie is the most accessible and safest of the three.
Chance of low, spilling breakers at Arthurs and Zilzie.
Best off the many rocks at high tide.
Three beaches largely surrounded by an expanding residential area, with formal public access to Zilzie only.
