Pigeon Cove beach (80) extends for 400 north of Woolly Rock as a curving southwest facing beach, which is partially protected by shoreline and offshore reefs, which lower waves to less than 1 m and maintain a steep, barless beach. While waves are low at the beach, wave breaking over the reefs maintains a permanent rip which drains the cove.

Swimming

Of these four beaches Post Office Rock is the calmest and safest, with the other three having both higher waves, rocks, reefs and rips.

Surfing

There are a few close-in reef breaks along Wooley Rocks beach.

Fishing

The rocks, rips and reef offer excellent fishing spots.

General

A very accessible and popular stretch of coast heavily utilised during the holiday periods.
