In lee of Slade Point is a small 300 m wide bay containing two protected, south facing, reflective beaches (Fig. 4.163). Beach 1125 is a 250 m long sand beach that forms a small tombolo in the centre attached to a bedrock reef. It is backed by a narrow foredune, and 30 m high bluffs. A vehicle track leads to the top of the beach, with a steep track down to the beach.

Swimming

The main Slade Point beach (1125) is the best and safest beach for swimming under normal low wave conditions. All the others are either difficult to access or dominated by rocks and reefs.

Surfing

None, apart from reef breaks at Slade Point during higher swell conditions.

Fishing

There are numerous sites around the cape, with the safest sites along the more protected southern and northern shores.

General

A high, dramatic headland and rocky section of coast, containing a mixture of small rock and reef-dominated beaches, with a caravan park at Sceale Bay.
