Figtree Inlet (NSW 416) lies 1 km to the north and is a 110 m long northwest-facing patch of sand, bordered and partly fronted by rocks, with seagrass growing to within 20 m of the shore. A straight 450 m long section of northwest-facing rocky shore separates it from the base of Long Beach (NSW 417). This 1.8 km long white sandy beach curves to the north then northwest to 20 m high Montague Point (Fig. 4.333). It receives low refracted swell, which maintains a low gradient cusped reflective beach, with seagrass lying between 50-150 m offshore. A car park is located behind the northern end of the beach. On the northern side of the point is Cabbage Tree Beach (NSW 418), which curves to the northwest for 350 m between the point and northern Cabbage Tree Point. Rock outcrops dominate the ends and southern section of the beach, with only the northern section free of rocks. A car park is located behind the centre of the beach.
All five beaches offer usually quiet conditions for swimming and no surf.
Honeymoon Bay and Bindijine are used as a base for campers and boat fishermen to launch boats. The rocks are usually quiet but unpredictable for fishing.
Once inside Dart Point the bay shore trends due north along the rocky Groper Coast for 2.5 km to Honeymoon Bay, then continues north as a series of four rock-bordered beaches for 5 km to Green Point, a section of shore called Montagu Roadstead. All the five beaches (NSW 414-418) are backed by densely vegetated terrain and are accessible by gravel roads.Read less
