Beach 1436 runs for 3.1km from the Colosseum Inlet to the only low, rocky point on the island. The beach faces generally north as it curves around between the inlet and the point. Two kilometre wide tidal shoals extend off the inlet end of the beach, while 300m wide sand flats front the rest of the beach. The high tide beach is relatively steep and narrow and in places eroding back into the casuarina trees. The house on the eastern point overlooks this beach.

Swimming

The main beaches all provide relatively safe swimming. However, use care at any of the tidal creeks and particularly the two large inlets, which have wide, deep channels and strong tidal currents.

Surfing

Only low, spilling waves over the more exposed barred beaches during easterly winds.

Fishing

Most fishers arrive by boat to fish the two inlets, with the beach and central creek being best at high tide.

General

A 12km long, relatively inaccessible and undeveloped island, offering many kilometres of sandy beaches and backing mangrove-fringed tidal creeks, with two large bordering inlets.
