Rocky and Green bay beaches (155 and 156) occupy two small rock bays eroded on the western side of Freeman Knob. A road runs along the top of the 20 m high bluffs backing the adjoining bays, with a well made walking track around the back of Rocky Bay and a steeper track down to Green Bay. Both bays have high tide sand beaches, and some sand in the surf, however rocks dominate the surf with a strong permanent rip running out of each bay. Neither is suitable for swimming or surfing. Their sloping granite rocks are used for rock fishing, however be very careful as they are prone to wave overwashing and can be extremely hazardous.
