On the south side of this facility is 300 m long beach 762, wedged in between the slipway and low, rocky bluffs; 200 m south of which is a 400 m long jetty. The beach is also used for storing fish pens, which are located in the bay off the point, as part of a fish farm.
None of these beaches are suitable for swimming, owing to either the presence of rocks, shallow sand, rock flats and tidal flats or the boating and shipping activities.
The Porter Bay training walls provide the best access to deeper water, as most of the large commercial jetties are not open to the public, while most of the shoreline is either too shallow or rocky.
A heavily developed section of shore with low energy, irregular sand and cobble beaches fronted by low sand and tidal flats, and crossed by some large jetties and several boat ramps.Read less
