Allom Point is a 30 m high, wooded headland that forms the southern entrance to Llewellyn Bay. There is no vehicle access to, and no development on, the point or its adjoining beaches. To the west of the point is the low energy, largely sand-filled, tide dominated bay. Just inside the western side of the point is a 600 m long sand spit (1150). The spit is backed by mangroves and high tide salt flats and fronted by sand to mud flats up to 1 km wide, with mangroves increasing toward the point. A small creek drains the backing flats and exits via the southern end of the spit.

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.
