West Point, 5 km southwest of Cape Catastrophe, is in fact the southern-most point of the peninsula. In lee of the 150 m high calcarenite headland are two partly protected beaches. Beach 806 is a 450 m long south facing coarse sand beach exposed to waves averaging over 1 m which break heavily on a usually narrow bar and patchy inshore reefs (Fig. 4.132). Two hundred meters to the west is beach 807, a 650 m long high tide sand beach, which is more protected by the point and fronted by near continuous calcarenite rocks and reefs, resulting in low waves at the shore. However gaps in the reefs result in permanent rips when waves are breaking. A track off the Memory Bay track leads to a lookout above the eastern end of beach 806, providing an excellent view from the 40 m high bluffs.
