On the south side of the low Rocky Point is a 4 km long, north-east facing beach that extends down to the protected lee of Cooper Point, capped by 200 m high Mount Cooper. There is access to the north end of the beach from Bramston Beach, which leads to a few houses set behind the beach. There is no other development and no facilities.The beach has a moderately steep high tide beach, fronted by a continuous, 50 m wide bar, which widens considerably toward Cooper Point, resulting in shallow shoals extending several hundred metres off the southern end of the beach.

Swimming

Best at high tide, particularly in the south.

Surfing

Usually a low break over the bar at mid to low tide, however during strong Trades, some spilling waves break across the southern shoals at high tide.

Fishing

Better at high tide, particularly in the south.

General

A long beach that is beginning to be developed, offering plenty of sand and the low tide bar and shoals.
