To the west of Agnes Island is an open, 3 km wide, north facing bay. It contains four beaches, all bordered by prominent headlands and backed by steeply rising, densely vegetated slopes, with the 1000 m high peak called The Thumb just 2 km to the west of the main beach. There is no development and no vehicle access to any of the beaches.Beach 816 lies immediately in lee of Agnes Island and at low tide connects the island to the mainland. The beach faces essentially north-east and is predominantly sandy, with numerous rocks outcropping along and off the 50 m wide main beach, while in the southern corner a boulder beach dominates and links the island at low tide.

Swimming

These beaches all receive moderate protection form the Trades, with waves usually less than 0.5 m high and rips usually absent. They are best at high tide, with rocks and reefs causing some problems at low tide.

Surfing

Usually none.

Fishing

The best spots are usually in the creek mouths and off the rocks at high tide, or from a boat over the coral and rock reefs.

General

Four natural beaches offering a variety of scenery and usually low wave to calm conditions.
