Finally beach 941 begins at the rocks forming the eastern entrance to Little Douglas bay (Fig. 4.145), and runs south for 900 m to an inflection that separates it from beach 940. The shacks lie behind the northern end of the beach, which is also used for launching boats. Sand flats up to 1 km wide extend off the beaches, with only the tidal channel into Little Douglas bay at the very northern end providing deeper water for boating..

Swimming

Most of these beaches are too shallow for swimming, except at high tide. Conditions are often calm with only low wind waves providing low surf.

Surfing

None.
