One and a half kilometres south along the coast from Shipwreck Creek are two small adjacent beaches, neither accessible from the walking track. The first (Beach 17) is 200 m long and consists of two pockets of sand, both fronting small creeks and backed by steep, vegetated bluffs. Two hundred metres further south is Beach 18, a 50 m long pocket of sand, bordered by 30 m high bluffs. Both beaches face south-east and receive waves averaging 1 to 1.5 m. These produce rock controlled rips on both beaches.
Both beaches have waves, rips and rocks and are rarely seen or used. Not recommended for bathing, unless calm conditions are prevailing.
Beach breaks amongst the rocks, if you can get your board there.
Deep rip holes, rocks and headlands provide plenty of opportunities.
Two small, rarely seen or used beaches, surrounded by steep bluffs with no formed access. They are off the coastal walking track and both are fronted by permanent rips.
