At Cape Coutts the bedrock coast turns a right angle and trends due south into Antechamber Bay. Five hundred metres before the sandy bay beach is reached are two pockets of white sand (KI-52, KI-53) at the foot of densely vegetated, 100 m high bedrock slopes. These are essentially an extension of the Antechamber Bay beach, joined in the sandy nearshore, but separated by bedrock at the shoreline. The two 30 m long beaches are both bordered by steeply dipping rocks.

General

None of these five beaches are easily accessible. All are backed by farmland and steep slopes and, while calm conditions often prevail, their isolated location and dominance of rock make them unsuitable for safe swimming.
