Home Beach (LIN5) is the main beach and lies at the foot of the resort. It is a 100m long pocket of sand, bordered by rock headlands, together with two terminal groynes, and the island jetty and boat ramp at the western end. In addition a seawall, pool and the resort back much of the beach. The beach is relatively narrow and steep at high tide, widening to 50m at low tide when it grades into a sand then reef flat up to 300m wide.

Swimming

The island is sheltered from the Trades by larger Shaw Island, located 3km to the south-east across Kennedy Sound; hence waves are usually low to calm. Best swimming is toward high tide when the flats are covered.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

The rocks and jetty are the most popular locations.

General

A largely national park island including several protected beaches, with Home Beach sitting at the foot of the resort.
