The main Farm beach (943) extends north for 2 km from a sandy inflection point with the southern beach, up to the northern boundary bluffs, next to the boat ramp area, with the shacks and houses located on the backing bedrock slopes. The beach is exposed to low refracted ocean swell, which average less than 0.5 m, with calm conditions also common. Apart from the access road and shacks there are no facilities at the beach.

Swimming

Farm Beach is the most accessible and popular location, while Gallipoli is the more scenic. All beaches are relatively safe under normal low wave to calm conditions, though access and rocks are a hazard on the northern beaches.

Surfing

Usually too small, with only shorebreaks in larger swell.

Fishing

Most fishers launch their boats at Farm Beach to head out to the deeper reefs.

General

An accessible, relatively low energy section of coast, mainly frequented by boat fishers.
