Between Sandbar beach and Number One Beach at Seal Rocks are five small pocket beaches (NSW 211-215). They occupy 2 km of east-facing coast and range in size from 125 m to 275 m. All are backed and bordered by forested hills rising steeply to over 100 m, and are only accessible by foot or boat. These beaches receive increasing protection from Sugarloaf Point, with waves averaging 1.2 m at the northern Number Five (211) and 1 m at the southern Number Two. The beach also grades from one dominated by rips against the headlands at Number Six and Five, to a continuous bar and often no rips at Number Four and three, to a reflective cobble beach fronted by rocks reefs at Number Two.

Swimming

These are isolated difficult to access usually rip-dominated beaches.

Surfing

They can provide reasonable beach breaks when the waves are moderate and the bars right.

Fishing

Owing to their difficult access and good spots either end, these are rarely fished from the land.
