The south-eastern end of Facing Island consists of 3 km of south-east facing shore between East Point, the eastern tip of the island, and Gatcombe Head, the southern point. In between are two small bays bordered by rocky bluffs and low cliffs. The western beach (F10) is a curving, 700 m long, south-east facing sandy beach, with a low gradient high tide beach fronted by a continuous, gently sloping, 80 m wide low tide bar. Rocks only border the ends of the beach. All three beaches are backed by low foredunes and hummocky grassed dunes. There is a solitary house on Settlement Point overlooking the western beach.
