German Point is a 10 m high calcarenite headland that protrudes 200 m seaward and has a high tide sand beach (98) along its southern face. The 150 m long beach is fronted by a 50 m wide intertidal rock platform. On the north side of the point is a second 150 m long pocket sandy beach (99) contained between the point and a smaller northern headland. This beach receives low waves and is steep and barless. It offers the safest swimming along this section of coast.
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.
Best beach breaks are on the 2 km of beaches south of German Point.
Rip holes and deep water can be found along all the beaches and off the rock platforms and reefs.
A section of coast a little more difficult to access and consequently little used by the general public.Read less
