Middleton Rocks beach (150) is dominated by dipping metasedimentary rocks which both border and front much of the 400 m long beach, with a central 30 m area clear of rock providing access to the ocean. Waves break across the rock reefs and a permanent rip flows out in front of the sand pocket. There is a car park at the western end of the beach.

Swimming

Both Middleton Rocks and Commodore Point beaches are dominated by rocks and usually unsuitable for swimming. The eastern end of Basham, away from the rocks, offers the safest swimming area.

Surfing

There is no recognised surf at any of these three beaches, although surfers do paddle out from Middleton Rocks during big seas to surf the adjoining Middleton beach breaks.

Fishing

The rocks of Middleton Rocks and Commodore Point are the best locations. However, beware of large waves which wash over the rocks.

General

Three accessible beaches with no facilities.
