To the south of Caves Beach is 5 km of irregular rocky shore containing three small beaches (NSW 256-258). The first two are located 1 km south of Caves, either side of the breakwater that links Spoon Rocks to the shore. The northern beach (NSW 256) faces northeast and curves for 250 m, between Stinky Point and the breakwater. This beach has only developed since construction of the breakwater in the 1970s. It is protected by the breakwater and the rocks from east and southeast swell with waves averaging 0.5 m, which maintains a steep reflective beach. The beach is only accessible around the rocks or by boat.
Beach Length: 0.25km
