Three kilometers to the south is Two Hummock Point, backed by two 30 m high conical hills. A 1.2 km long beach (569) fronts the southern hummock and is fronted by 500 m wide sand flats. Mangroves extend for another 5 km south of the hummock, to beach 570. This 3.7 km long section of coast consists of a highly crenulate high tide beach, broken by nine small dry creeks and their rocky deltas, fringed by rock flats, then sand flats extending on average 300 m into the gulf. A 4WD tracks parallels most of the beach, with the military road a few hundred metres inland.
