Just west of the cove is a 500 m long high tide sand beach (165), also backed, bordered and fronted by rocks and jagged rock reefs, with a more open sandy 80 m long pocket toward the western end. Waves average about 1.5 m and two permanent rips drain the surf zone. This beach is backed by Ralgnal farm and a small rocky creek cross the western end of the beach. Public access is via a foreshore walking track along the grassy bluffs from Petrel Cove.

Swimming

Kings Head is the only relatively safe beach, as Petrel Cove and Ralgnal are dominated by rocks and rips.

Surfing

Chance of a short beach break at Petrel Cove, however watch the rocks.

Fishing

This is a popular spot with permanent rip holes and good access from both the beaches and rocks.

General

Three rock dominated sand beaches, all lying along the coastal walking track to Newland Head.
