Cooper Point protrudes 2.5 km to the east from the southern end of Rocky Point Beach. Along the base of its steep, densely vegetated slopes is a strip of sand and metamorphic rocks that comprises the three beaches. The three all lie within Ella Bay National Park and are undeveloped, with no vehicle or foot access and no facilities.Cooper Point (1) Beach (757) is 400 m long, faces almost due north and receives low waves averaging about 0.3 m. It has a steep, narrow high tide beach covered with numerous rocks and boulders, and tidal shoals off the beach.

Swimming

On all three beaches it is better to swim at high tide, as there are shallow shoals and bars exposed at low tide, plus the many rocks. Beware of the rocks that may be submerged at high tide.

Surfing

During strong Trades, there is a chance of a wave running along the north side of Cooper Point and breaking over the low tide shoals.

Fishing

Best at high tide off the beaches or on the many rocks.

General

Three natural beaches backed by the steep, tropical slopes of Mount Cooper.
