The western shore of the island is 18 km long and largely dominated by low energy rocky shore, with mangrove-fringed Shoal Bay in the south and a sandy strip in the north-west containing two beaches. The first beach is Farmers Point (F14); site of the island's main settlement, a collection of several houses. The sandy point protrudes into North Entrance and has a continuous, moderate gradient beach to either side, with rock flats bordering both ends. The beach is backed by a low foredune, then the rows of houses and beach shacks in amongst the scattered trees. The ferry from Gladstone lands at the point, using the beach for landing.
