Stony Rise is a 900 m long section of low calcarenite bluffs and reefs that contain three smaller beaches. The first (124) is an irregular 300 m long strip of sand fronted by reef flats extending up to 100 m seaward of the beach. Beach 125 is a pocket 200 m long beach, bordered by protruding reefs, and with reefs scattered across the 100 m wide embayment. Beach 126 is a 100 m long pocket of sand, with a steep barless beach, and small bluff and reef bordered embayment, largely free of reefs. It offers the safest swimming in this rip and reef dominated section of coast. There is a 4WD track out from Robe to Stony Rise, with a camping area set in the scrub about 500 m behind the rise, and tracks continuing through the dunes south to Queens Head and north to Cape Lannes.
This is a hazardous section of rock, reef and rip dominated coast. The safest beach for swimming is the northern Stony Rise beach (126). Be very careful swimming anywhere along this coast.
There are numerous reef and beach breaks along the shore, with the best being along Queens Head, Back and Evans Cave beaches.
A popular series of beach and rocks to fish within easy reach of Robe, so long as you have a good 4WD and know the tracks.
An interesting section of coat offering a wide variety of beaches bluffs and reefs. Most people drive through enjoying the views, while those who stay tend to fish.Read less
