Yilki beach (162) is the longest beach in the bay, running for 3 km in a southeast then south direction to the base of Rosetta Head. It is backed by a road and the settlements of Yilki and Encounter Bay. This is a very low energy, narrow beach, with shallow seagrass covered sand then rock flats fronting the entire beach. Calm conditions usually prevail. At the southern end is a small boat ramp, and small boats often moor off the beach.

Swimming

These are four low energy relatively safe beaches. The most popular are Victor Harbour and the Inman River mouth beaches, which are both backed by large reserves.

Surfing

None in the bay, except during big seas when wave break at Victor Harbour beach.

Fishing

The Rosetta Head wharf is the most popular shore base spot to fish from, and the Inman River, particularly when the mouth is open.

General

Four beaches set in a low energy bay, with excellent access to all, and the facilities of Victor Harbour right behind.
