North Point is the northern tip of Facing Island and consists of 100 m wide intertidal rock flats backed by two sandy beaches and capped by low dunes. On both sides of the point are 250 m long, curving, north-west facing (F16) and north-east facing (F1) high tide beaches, both fronted by the rock flats. The eastern beach ends at a bend in the shoreline, on the southern side of which is 500 m long Castle Rocks Beach (F2). This beach faces more easterly and is also fronted by 100 m wide rock flats, and is backed by now stable dunes that have in the past blown across the 500 m wide North Point. The southern end of the beach has a 100 m long, low, protruding headland called Northcliffe.
