Snapper Point is a flat 10 m high protruding calcarenite surface, which combined with other rocks and reefs forms two small beaches to the east, both backed by active 20 m high foredunes. The first (74) is a curving, east facing 100 m long pocket of steep sand. The second (75) is 200 m long but more irregular owing to rocks and reefs dominating the western half of the beach. Both beaches can be accessed from the road or a car park above Snapper Point.

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.
