Port William beach (73) is a 450 m long southwest facing beach lying in lee of calcarenite reefs which lower waves at the shore to about 0.5 m, and maintain a steep, barless beach. There is a car park at the western end, which provides a good view of the beach. The remainder of the beach is backed by active dune, which extend 300 m inland and to heights of 20 m.

Swimming

While waves are relative low at all four beaches, be careful of the numerous rocks and reefs. Salmon Hole is the safest close inshore. Stay clear of the reef as water drains out across and around the reef.

Surfing

None at the beaches.

Fishing

As the names snapper and salmon imply this is a popular stretch of coast to fish from the beach or rock platforms.

General

Four beaches located on the Beachport scenic drive, and well worth viewing and spending more time to swim, walk or fish.
