Immediately east of the point is 100 m long Shelly Beach (756), a sand, rock and shelly high tide beach, fronted by a mixture of rock and sand flats, and backed by a foreshore reserve and car park. There is a boat ramp and more parking 200 m east of the beach.

Swimming

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.

Surfing

None.

Fishing

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.

General

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.
