Cedar Bay is an open, 7 km long, east facing bay, contained in an amphitheatre of steep, densely vegetated slopes rising to over 600 m within 2 km of the shore. The bay contains two beaches; the main northern beach (663) is 3.5 km long and runs south in a crenulate fashion from the mouth of the small Ashwell Creek to the headland below 590 m high Mount Finlay.On the southern side of this headland is the 700 m long southern beach (664), a straight beach wedged in below slopes that rise steeply to Mount Ramsay. Three pockets of fringing reef lie along the northern beach with open water in between, while the southern beach has no reef.

Swimming

Both beaches have relatively deep water off the beach at high tide, with alternating reef and open water along the northern beach.

Surfing

The beaches receive low wind waves that produce some low choppy surf.

Fishing

Best off the northern beach in the deeper water beside the reefs and at Ashwell Creek mouth.

General

A relatively long bay with two stunning beaches, both backed by lush vegetation overhanging the beach, and fronted in part by coral reefs.
