Rosetta Head is a 100 m high conical granite headland. On its protected northern side is a narrow strip of sand largely fronted by rocks facing north toward West Island 500 m offshore. A gravel rock backs the winding beach (163) and leads out to a small wharf at the eastern end of the beach. The wharf in now mainly used for fishing.

Swimming

These are four low energy relatively safe beaches. The most popular are Victor Harbour and the Inman River mouth beaches, which are both backed by large reserves.

None in the bay, except during big seas when wave break at Victor Harbour beach.

Fishing
