Beach KI-168 is a 50 m pocket boulder beach set within a 200 m deep indentation in the rocky coast.


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.


Too rocky with low waves.


Good fishing spots abound along this rocky-reefy shoreline.


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.
