Rocky Point (Daydream) forms the southern boundary of its long neighbour, Wonga Beach. The point is the southern extent of the Dagmar Range and elevations of 100 to 200 m are reached within a few hundred metres of the coast. The Daintree Road is forced to hug the shoreline. Immediately below the 2 km long, winding point and road is a narrow, crenulate, sandy high tide beach, interspersed with rocks and fronted by a wider low tide beach and rock flats. Toward the southern end is a good concrete boat ramp and a groyne to shelter it from the Trade winds and waves.

Swimming

This beach is relatively safe and best at high tide, however be careful of the numerous rocks.

Surfing

Usually none, however waves can run along the rock flats in strong Trades.

Fishing

Good at high tide over the rocks and flats, however most fishers use the ramp to go outside.

General

A highly visible beach right below the main road, best suited for viewing rather than recreating.
