Beaches 1050 and 1051 are two 300 m long neighbouring beaches which lie immediately south of Walkers Rock. They are each bordered by small 10 m high calcarenite bluffs. Beach 1050 has reef off each bluff and a permanent central rip, while 1051 has a sand beach and surf, with permanent rips against the bluffs at each end. Waves average between 1 to 1.5 m.
The safest swimming is at the access points at the main cape beach and Walkers Rock. The other beaches, while receiving lowered waves, can have rips, especially the two on the southern side of Walkers Rock.
There are breaks on Cape Finniss over the calcarenite reefs, one a left handers called Blackfellows. These are dangerous and require local knowledge and experience to surf. It was also the site of a fatal shark attack in 2000. There are also beach breaks at the two more exposed beaches just south of Walkers Rocks, with low refracted swell breaking at Walkers Rocks during big outside wave conditions.
Most fishers launch their boats at the cape and Walkers Rock to fish the many inshore reefs, with good beach fishing on the south side of the rocks.
Two accessible parts of the coast, offering generally lower wave conditions and natural beaches.
