Between the mouths of Middle River and King George River are 5 km of rocky, irregular, cliffed coast containing ten small boulder beaches and the solitary sandy King George Beach. The only public access is to the boulder beaches located 1 km west of the King George River mouth. The remainder are backed by a buffer of cliffs, then an approximately 100 m wide cliff-top strip of scrub, then cleared farmland.Beach KI-167 is an 80 m long pocket boulder beach located 200 m past the Middle River mouth and bounded by steeply dipping rock platforms.

Swimming

The only beach suitable for swimming is the main King George River mouth beach, but this is surrounded by private farmland with no public access. All the other beaches are dominated by rocks and reefs.

Surfing

Too rocky with low waves.

Fishing

Good fishing spots abound along this rocky-reefy shoreline.

General

The best place to see an example of a cobble-boulder beach is at the King George Beach access point. This location also provides good access to rocky fishing locations.
