Cape Willoughby is the easternmost point of the island. It is a protruding, 50 m high metasedimentary headland, capped by the Cape Willoughby lighthouse and its three lighthouse-keeper houses. The now automatic light is a major tourist attraction and viewing point for the eastern end of the island. The rugged coast to either side is predominantly composed of steep, 100 m high vegetated bluffs in Moncrieff Bay to the north, while to the south is 10 km of generally sheer, 60 to 80 m high cliff down to Cape Hart. There are two small beaches along the 5 km long Moncrieff Bay shoreline. Pink Bay (KI-56) is a 40 m pocket of sand wedged inside a narrow, V-shaped bay. It faces north and is somewhat protected, but does receive low swell. On the north side of the lighthouse is a second beach (KI-57), a 150 m long high tide boulder beach fronted by a sand bar and surf, with usually one rip draining the small beach
