The eastern side of Round Hill Head is exposed to sea and swell waves and, unlike its western side, consists of 1.5 km of predominantly bare rock, with three small beaches tucked into three gaps in the rocks. There is a car park and monument on the head, which lies directly to the west and above the first beach, with access to the other two beaches from residential streets immediately south of the head.
Beach 1468 is a 50 m pocket of high tide cobbles fronted by a 50 to 80 m wide low tide bar, with rocks bordering each side and the 40 m high head behind. There is a track down the bluffs to the beach. Waves average 0.5 to 1 m, and low surf and rips are common.
