Eimeo Point is a small, 60 m high, conical headland, capped by a small but famous hotel that offers spectacular views from every room. Sunset Bay lies below to the west, with small Eimeo beach to the east. A road off the Bucasia Road runs out to Eimeo and on to Dolphin Heads and Blacks beach.Eimeo beach (1107) is a 400 m long, north facing, low energy beach. The beach extends east of the rocks at the base of the point as a single sand spit, backed by a small, mangrove-filled tidal creek. There is one row of houses on the spit, which ends at the creek mouth. The beach consists of a 50 m wide high tide beach fronted by sand flats that widen to 100 m off the creek mouth.

Swimming

Both the beach and the lake, for resort guests, offer relatively safe swimming, although the beach can only be used at high tide.

Surfing

Chance of a low, reformed wave wrapping around the point during strong south-easterlies.

Fishing

Best off the Eimeo Point rocks or in the creek.

General

A small but popular beach, catering to the locals and also increasingly to tourists.
