Two and a half kilometers to the north is the first of the Coles Point beaches. Beach 957 is a 400 m long west facing sand beach, backed by 20 m high bluffs, with a vehicle track leading to the southern bluffs. The beach receives waves averaging up to 1 m, which break across a reef and rock filled 50 m wide surf zone, with a permanent rip draining the surf. On the northern side of the rocks is 600 m long beach 958, a straight west facing beach which receives waves averaging 1 m. These maintain a 50 m wide bar which is usually cut by two beach rips, together with some rocks along the beach. The vehicle track runs along the 20 m high bluffs behind the beach, with no formal foot access. It is bordered by a protruding bluff at the northern end, on the northern side of which is 200 m long beach 959, a pocket of sand, backed by the bluffs and partially fronted by reefs. Bluffs and a rock platform separate it from beach 960, which lies of the southern side of Coles Point. The beach is 500 m long, faces south and curves round slightly under 20 m high bluffs. There are bluff top car parks at either end, with the best access down the steep southern bluff.
