Darook Park beach (PH 1) lies 400 m inside Hungey Point, and consists of a curving 230 m long beach that faces west across the narrow bay. The beach has a narrow high tide strip of sand grading abruptly into 50 m wide intertidal sand flats, with substantial sand shoals continuing almost to the other side of the bay (Fig. 4.263). A small creek drains onto the beach causing a central sand delta on the shoals. It is bordered by a sloping rocky shore, with the grassy Darook Park occupying the backing slopes, and then residential houses. Access is limited to narrow walkways at the end of some of the backing streets.

Swimming

All the southern port beaches are usually exposed to calm to low wave conditions and relative quiet, apart from deeper water off Horderns Beach.

Surfing

Usually none, however when the swell is running there are a number of breaks on the tidal shoals out in the bay, which are ridden by the local surfers.

Fishing

All the port beaches, bays and rocky headlands are popular fishing spots.
