On the tip of the point is a 200 m long, north-east facing high tide sand beach (1151), fronted by 100 m wide, jagged rock flats with a few mangroves growing on the rocks, and dense shrub behind. On the southern side of the point is a second rockbound beach (1152); it is 350 m long, faces more easterly and is also dominated by jagged bordering and low tide rock flats.

Swimming

None of these beaches are suitable for swimming, except at high tide during calm conditions. Be very careful on the point beach due to the dominance of rocks.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

Best in the spit beach creek, or off the point rocks at high tide.

General

Three isolated beaches that are only accessible by boat, and even then with some difficulty on the rocky point beaches.
