Beach 96 is a 1.6 km long double arcurate beach, with a sandy foreland in the centre. Reefs form the boundaries and some lie offshore, however sufficient wave energy reaches the shore to maintain 3 to 4 beach rips, with permanent rips adjacent to the reefs.

Swimming

While waves tend to be a little lower along this section owing to the numerous reefs, only the northern German Point beach, and to a lesser extend the beach south of Errington Hole offer safer swimming. On all beaches beware of rips as well as the dominating rocks and reefs.

Surfing

Best beach breaks are on the 2 km of beaches south of German Point.

Fishing

Rip holes and deep water can be found along all the beaches and off the rock platforms and reefs.

General

A section of coast a little more difficult to access and consequently little used by the general public.
